Our Pet of the Week for the first week of September is Gracie, the sweet, senior Australian Cattledog mix. Gracie is just about the smartest cookie you’ll ever meet. But don’t worry, she only uses her awesome intelligence to find ways to make you smile☺
Gracie loves, loves, LOVES her tennis ball and is always ready for an adventure with her person-pal. Gracie is fine with other polite dogs and doesn’t even mind having feline friends! If you are looking for a sweet, smart, loyal senior dog to warm your feet and keep you smiling, please come in and meet Gracie!
The fee to adopt Gracie 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.
