Paws and Claws – Animal Shelter News

Hey! My name is “Hershey” and right now I am living at the Clarke County Animal Shelter, right here in Berryville!

The girls here are taking great care of me, but I am definitely ready to find my forever home. So let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I came into the shelter as a stray, with my sister “Kisses” and she has been adopted! We were both picked up in the Blandy Farm area, but no one thought about coming to pick us up. Since Kisses has been adopted I have been left here all by my lonesome. I am a female, around 2- 4 years old. I am partially house broken, and will need some help with that, but I think it’s going to be easy. I am a very active young girl, as I have not been spayed yet.

I get along with other dogs, and the girls here let me play with my other four-legged friends all of the time. I have a current DHLPP (distemper, parvo) vaccine, and a current Bordatella (kennel cough) vaccine. Since I am not already spayed, that will definitely have to be done before I can go home. And while I’m at the vet getting that done, they will even give me a Rabies Vaccine!

I am definitely ready to find my forever family! I just know that my new family is out there somewhere!

Could it be you?

If you would to learn more about me then please call Jenny Wright or Brittany Fewell at the animal shelter. Their phone number is 540) 955-5104.

Oh, and the girls asked me to give you all a couple of reminders!

October is the American Humane Associations Adopt-A-Dog Month! Can you believe that?! Everyone is being encouraged to visit their local shelter. You might find the next love of your life there! A new dog could be so much to your family; a constant companion, a friendly face after a long, hard day at work, an excercise or cuddle buddy, and even your child’s new best friend! Animal shelters have dogs of all shapes, sizes, types, and ages! Even if you wanted something specific you could always find a breed specific rescue group to help you find your new forever home!

So what are you waiting for?! Adopt a animal friend today!
