Year-end numbers are in for Have A Heart Pet Shelter and what a year 2022 was! In those twelve months, our all-volunteer organization took in/rescued 641 dogs and 192 cats for a total of 833 animals! We processed adoptions for 134 dogs and 187 cats for a total of 321. Additionally, 448 dogs were transferred out of state where they would have better chances for being adopted. Thirty-nine animals were returned to their owners. We don’t yet have total numbers for the spay and neuter services but we do know it will exceed 1300. Just think how many unwanted/abandoned puppies and kittens that will have prevented!
Whew…it’s no wonder our volunteers are tired! The number of animals we’re currently caring for is the highest we’ve ever had. We’re always looking to add animal-loving volunteers to our group, so if you have some time to give, please let us know…either by calling 870/449-7387 or stopping by the Shelter at 657 Highway 202 West in Yellville during our normal hours, Wednesday through Saturday, 9 am to 3 pm.
