The past week was another good one at Have a Heart. Adopted pets included a dog named Lincoln and kitty Gypsy Rose. If you visited the Shelter in the past couple months, you may have seen Gypsy Rose. She has been the Shelter kitty for the past few months, mingling with the Thrift Store shoppers and other folks with Shelter business. Everyone was glad to see this sweet kitty find her fur-ever home.

            There are very few remaining openings available for the next Low Cost Spay and Neuter Clinic scheduled for March 17th – 19th.  If you would like to register for any of the remaining spots, you may do so in person at the Shelter on any Wednesday or Friday from 10am – 2pm. We recommend calling first to make sure there is still space available. Once the schedule is filled, we will take names for a stand-by list in case there are any cancellations. We will also post updates regarding the Spay and Neuter Clinic on our Facebook page. Be sure to “like” and follow us on Facebook.

            Have a Heart could use a few more volunteers. If you can spare some time, we can find a job for you that fits your abilities. If dog walking and kennel cleaning is not your thing, you could help in the cattery. In addition to animal care we can use help in the Thrift Store, there is always laundry to wash and fold and as the weather warms we can use help with outdoor maintenance. Talk to David, our volunteer coordinator, to figure out what would work best for you.

            This week’s featured cat is Rosie. Rosie is a young gray tabby estimated to be about 2-3 years old. She was surrendered along with her young kitten. Her kitten was adopted and now it’s time for Rosie to find her own home. Rosie is restless at the shelter and doesn’t like to be in her kennel. She would be a good indoor/outdoor cat in a home where she can have a little freedom outdoors. Rosie has been spayed and is up to date on vaccines, so she’s ready to go. Stop by Have a Heart to meet Rosie and our other adoptable cats and kittens.

            Hank is our featured dog for the week. Hank is a young dog estimated to be less than one year of age. With his white and tan coat he looks like he may be part Springer Spaniel, but that’s just a guess. He was originally found as a stray, roaming with two other dogs. Hank was adopted, but he was not a good fit for the folks that adopted him, so he was returned to the shelter. Hank is housebroken and crate trained. He would do better in a home without young children. He has a sweet disposition and could very well turn into your new best friend. Stop by Have a Heart to meet Hank and our other adoptable dogs.

Have a Heart is located at 657 Highway 202 in Yellville. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9am-3pm. Phone 870-449-7387.
