Shelter Tales with Barnaby

Hey y'all it's your old pal Barnaby here coming to you live from the Lillian Allbon Cumberland County Animal Shelter on Smith Road.

By now I am sure you have heard about the break-in at our shelter where a sum of money and gift cards were stolen. We are thankful that no animals were hurt. We realize that this situation could have been much worse.

Everyone here wants to send a heartfelt thank you to the community for supporting us the way you have. From the online auction to monetary donations from businesses and individuals and folks dropping off wish list items, your generosity has been incredible. We love you all!

Our Pet of The Week this week is Turbo.

Turbo is a lovely nine-year-old female cat that would enjoy a quiet home. Turbo would make a wonderful companion for a senior, a single person or a couple with no children.

For more information on Turbo find us on Facebook, check out our website or call our manager Tara at 902-661-PAWS.

Congratulations to cat Cola as he went to forever home on the weekend. And happy tails to dog Bo Bo as he went off with his new loving family this week! Congratulations to our shelter lottery tree winner Kathy Herrett.

The winning ticket was drawn during New Year’s Eve celebrations at the Amherst Stadium.

Be sure to stop out to the shelter and check out some of our lovely senior animals available for adoption. We are open daily to the public from 1 to 4 p.m.

Bubbles is a sweet senior Beagle mix that would love a place call home for his golden years and Peaches is an eight-year-old Yorkie that is bursting with personality and sass. Remember senior pets make the best pets and are often overlooked by potential adopters. Please give them a chance.

That's all for now, until next time keep your tail in the air and your heart open wide and don't forget us here at the LA Animal Shelter.

We are the little shelter with the big heart.
