Paws & Claws – Fall Fling for Furry Friends

Hey everyone! Dizzy asked that I tell you hello from him. He is doing well, but still waiting for a home.

As most of you know by now, my name is Brittany, and I am the shelter attendant at the Clarke County Animal Shelter.

This week I would like to talk to you about a very special event that we have coming up.

On November 5th, from 12 to 3 PM, we are going to be hosting “Fall Fling for Furry Friends.” It is sure to be a great day, and we want to see a huge turnout.

We will be having lots of great things going on for the whole family. There will be pony rides, shelter tours hosted by our volunteers, an agility demonstration provided by Mrs. Leslie McClean of the Humane Foundation. Mr.B’s will also be here providing free BBQ sandwiches. We will also be having small snacks and refreshments inside the shelter. The band “Flavor” will be performing.  Our new shelter calendars will be on sale for $15.00. And there will be lots of games for the children. We are also going to have an auction for great pet baskets.

During this time the Clarke County Humane Foundation will be hosting their annual Rabies Clinic. The clinic will be open from 1 to 3 PM. Shots will cost $10.00. If you have previous vaccination records please bring those with you. Both cats and dogs are welcome.

However, please keep in mind that the clinic is open ONLY to Clarke County residents. The open house is open to everyone, so even if you aren’t coming for the rabies clinic, or you aren’t a county resident you should still stop by for tons of fun.

Leashed, vaccinated, well-behaved pets are always welcome here at the shelter!

We look forward to seeing everyone there!


  1. This is a great opportunity to get out and support your local animal shelter. They are in need of your support. Because of an increase in unwanted and owner abandoned pets, the local shelters are becoming over crowded and in need of funds. Also, there are plenty of great pets available for adoption.

    When you adopt from a shelter you’ll help save the lives of two animals—the pet you adopt and a homeless animal somewhere who can be rescued because of space you helped free up.
