The Friends of Haywood County Animal Shelter have produced a refrigerator magnet to remind people how to look for a lost pet or adopt in Haywood County.
Teresa Smith, the new board chair of the Friends of Haywood County Animal Shelter, said, “It is not enough to have this info in the paper and on our website, but for people to have a tangible resource when going through a lost pet crisis. This magnet has been handed out to feed stores, veterinarians, groomers and pet shops and the Dog Bakery to give out to their clients. The officers of Haywood County Animal Services also carry them while out on patrol. They will also be available at various events this year.”
“It is hoped that this information will help someone in Haywood County find their lost pet or even find a new one on the PetHarbor.com website,” Smith said.
Friends of Haywood County Animal Shelter is a 501c(3) nonprofit dedicated to raising money for medical expenses for shelter animals that would not otherwise be covered under the animal services budget.
The group provided funds for a walking path for shelter dogs on the shelter property and continues to help the shelter obtain other items, such as microchip scanners and microchips, by applying for grants. Also, a new tag making machine along with collars was recently provided for all dogs and cats adopted from the shelter.
