Our Pet of the Week for the week of July 9 is Mathis, an approximately 9 year old, neutered, male, Miniature Poodle/Yorkie mix.
Mathis is as affectionate as can be, plays well with other little dogs, is an absolute gentleman when it comes to walking on a leash, and will love you so completely that you won’t believe such a little dog could have such a big heart! Mathis does have impaired vision, and will need to go to a home that can accommodate his special needs, but he gets around like a champ once he’s familiar with his environment.
The fee to adopt Mathis is only $55.00, 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 Saturday 12 p.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.
