From Lincoln County Animal Shelter
Say hello to our Pet of the Week for the week of April 16, Eska!! Eska, who looks like an Australian cattle dog/basset hound mix, is an older gentleman (we’re thinking 7-10 years old) who has quickly become a staff favorite. Eska is well house-trained, has great obedience skills, and has done great with other dogs here at the Shelter. Having never lived with kitties, and given his focused interest in their every move, Eska should go to a feline free household. This happy, well-rounded fellow will make a great addition to the right home. Spend some time with Eska and let him charm you with his unique, good looks and charming personality!
The fee to adopt Eska is only $75.00, which includes a vet visit (generously supplied by our local veterinarians), microchip, flea treatment, wormer and vaccinations, two free training sessions with Dog E University’s Tammy Boysun, and a free bag of dog food courtesy of the Feed Corral, and all animals are spayed and neutered prior to adoption.
Please come and visit all the animals at your Lincoln County Animal Shelter, located at 510 NE Harney St. in Newport (just east of the Fairgrounds). Hours are: Tuesday through Friday 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Also, if you can help us restock our pet food pantry for our Meals on Wheels and Food Bank programs, that will really help. We need wet cat food and we distribute hundreds of pounds of pet food each month to those in need. For additional information on our available animals, or on volunteering, please call the Shelter during business hours at 265-6610 & press option 6.
