Pet of the Week
Have a Heart is not featuring any specific pets this week. We are focusing on last minute details for our biggest fund raiser of the year, our Soup and Chili Dinner and Pie Auction. Mark your calendars; the dinner will be held this Saturday night (November 17th) from 5-8 p.m. at Madden’s Auction House on 14th Street in Summit. For a $7.00 donation you can enjoy several varieties of soup or chili, crackers, cornbread, beverage and a dessert. Rio will be performing live music. In addition to the pie auction, we will also have a silent auction and raffles. In the last several years, our grass roots organization has evolved into a professionally run shelter serving our community. In addition to securing a new building, we have implemented procedures and protocols to ensure that things are done properly. We are able to microchip our pets, and they receive what they need for vaccines and overall good health. Many of our animals arrive in less than optimal health, and we do what we have to in order to help them put on weight, get rid of pests, infection or treat injuries. Sometimes they need surgery. We have constructed isolation kennels. We want to purchase a computer information system designed to help day to day operations go smoothly. All of this requires revenue to keep things running. Have a Heart receives no money from the city or county. Everything is accomplished by our awesome volunteers who give generously of their time and by the generosity of our community. We’re hoping you’ll take time out from you busy schedule to come and support the Shelter, reconnect with friends from the community and enjoy some homemade goodies and live music. Tickets are available in advance at the Shelter or from board members. You can also get tickets at the door. We hope to see you there! Have a Heart is located at 657 Highway 202 in Yellville. Hours are 9am to 3 pm Tuesday through Saturday. Phone 870-449-7387.
