Pets of the Week

            The past week started out very slow for adoptions at Have a Heart, but ended well with 7 dogs being adopted. A young dog named Valentino was adopted on Valentine’s Day. How appropriate is that? On Saturday the lucky dogs that went to their new homes were Lenny, Duke and Flame. George was also adopted but he will be picked up on Wednesday. Romeo is fostered pending adoption as soon as he is neutered. Duke’s brother, Charlie, was also adopted and will be picked up in 2 weeks. Earlier in the week our kitty Simon went home with his new parents. Good luck to these fur-babies in their new homes. If you follow us on Facebook, you can see pictures of these happy pets with their new families.

            If you have not shopped our Thrift Store lately, you should take the time to check out some of the new merchandise. We have had some really nice items that were recently donated. Our volunteers work hard to keep the merchandise nicely displayed and to have a wide variety of items available at great prices. It’s called a Thrift Store, but the merchandise is as nice as items in a gift store.

            Felicity is our featured cat for the week. Felicity is a petite, pretty cat that came to the Shelter as a stray from the Yellville area. She’s a beautiful silver and white short haired tabby estimated to be about 1-2 yrs of age. She is very small for an adult cat.  Felicity is shy, very sweet and gentle. She’s not very vocal, has a laid back personality, but can still be playful at times. Felicity is ready to find her permanent home where she can cuddle up in your lap and enjoy being a spoiled house cat. Come by Have a Heart to meet Felicity and our other adoptable cats and kittens.

            We are not featuring a specific dog for this week. Flame was supposed to be our featured pup, but she was one of the lucky ones who got adopted on Saturday. We will have other dogs coming in to fill the kennel space. The shelter has a waiting list of dogs to take the place of those that get adopted. The dogs on the list could be from local Animal Control or from people who can no longer care for their pets. If you’re looking to adopt a dog, you’ll have to stop in to meet the newest arrivals. Have a Heart is located at 657 Highway 202 in Yellville. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 9 am – 3 pm. Phone 870-449-7387.
