Pets of the Week

            Old man winter does not seem to want to go away. The shelter kids are grateful that they have a nice warm building to return to after their daily walks. If you have outdoor pets, please remember to give them extra shelter in this bitter cold weather.  Better yet bring them indoors, even if it’s in the garage, barn or basement. Don’t forget a blanket, dog bed or straw for insulation if they will be on concrete.  All of the spots for the April Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic have been filled, but we are taking names for a stand-by list since there are usually a couple cancellations. Call the Shelter to get your name on the stand-by list. We are transporting puppies out of state again this week, knowing they will have a better chance of being adopted. This is why HAH constantly reminds folks to spay and neuter their pets.

            HAH is in need of dependable volunteers to help care for the shelter dogs and cats. We have a small handful of very dedicated people, but many of them volunteer so many hours that it’s starting to feel like a full time job, but without the pay. It doesn’t matter if you can help one or two days a week or once a month. Stop by the Shelter for more information about volunteering. It’s a good thing to help the less fortunate, whether they have two legs or four.

            Our featured kitty gets top spot this week. Meet Oreo, a medium domestic short hair youngster. Oreo is a sweet natured, healthy, active, playful and curious little boy who loves attention from everyone.  He likes to give nibbles and will pull your hand in for his unique way of connecting. ^_^ His estimated DOB is late May, 2018 so he’s about 9 months young. Oreo is up to date on his shots and ready to find his fur-ever home. Stop by HAH to meet Oreo and all of our other sweet cats and kittens.

            Our featured pooch for this week is Marvin. Marvin came to us a stray from Flippin. He looks like he could be a Basset Hound or maybe Beagle mix. His age is estimated to be about 1 ½ years and he weighs 38 pounds. Marvin is a friendly boy whose tail is always wagging. He is calm, rarely barks and walks well on a leash. It does not seem like he’s had any training, but he wants to please and would probably learn basic commands very easily. We’re not sure if he’s housebroken, but does a fairly good job of not soiling his kennel. He would be a good family pet. Stop by HAH to meet this sweet boy or any of our other adoptable dogs.
