This week, we’d like to pay tribute to Caleb Shaw and Hudson Adams, two seniors from Cotter High School, who held a fundraiser at their school to benefit the animals at Have A Heart Pet Shelter. They collected 219 pounds of dog food, 143 pounds of cat food, 31 pounds of treats as well as toys, blankets, bandannas and pee pads. When people speak disparagingly about the younger generation, they need to know there are still a lot of great, caring kids out there. A big, heartfelt “Thank you!” to Hudson and Caleb. You rock!

Also, this week we want to remind you of the upcoming Soup and Chili Supper Fundraiser, along with a Cake and Pie Auction (just in time for Thanksgiving). Save the date of Saturday, November 19, 5-8 pm. Watch next week for more details!
Our pet of the week is Toffee.
This sweet girl came up to a house on Hwy 62 E very pregnant. The people who found her took care of her and the litter of pups until they were weaned. The pups were sent to a puppy rescue when they were 8 weeks old, where they have a greater chance to be adopted. Toffee is now at the shelter. She has had all her vaccines, spayed, been microchipped, heartworm tested and put on heartworm and flea and tick prevention. Now it’s her time to start her life over in a new, loving home where she will be top dog and never have to worry about having puppies again. Toffee is a 1 year old, shepherd mix who weighs 55 lbs. She walks well on a leash, gets along well with other dogs, likes children, loves belly rubs, is almost completely housebroken, and is quiet in the Shelter. She’ll make a wonderful addition to any family.
If you’d like to meet Toffee or any of our other adoptables, please come by the Shelter at 657 Highway 202 West in Yellville or call us at 870/449-7387. Please note: We are currently at a crisis level of volunteers needed. We are so very grateful for those we have, but we’d love to add to our ranks. Because of the current need, the shelter is currently open only Wednesday through Saturday, 9 am to 3 pm. Also, again because we are a very small group dedicated first and foremost to caring for as many animals as we can, our answering machine is currently turned off. The volume of voicemails we get are just too overwhelming to address and still care for the furbabies in our care. We are answering the phone during the hours we are open. If anyone is interested in volunteering, we’d love to hear from you! There’s something for everyone to do!
