Our Pet of the Week for the week of October 22, is Biggie! This handsome, approximately 9 month old, neutered, male American Pitbull Terrier mix, really lives up to his name; Biggie is over 60 pounds and still growing!
Biggie is a really smart kid, who loves to please his people and play with everyone he meets. If you’ve been searching for a young dog who will excel in obedience, agility, flyball, or anything else you want to throw at him, Biggie may be the guy for you. Biggie loves to play with other dogs, but likes to play hard, so he may be a bit much for senior or small dogs. Biggie isn’t just a big dog with big ears and a big heart, he’s a rough and ready, best friend forever in the making!
The fee to adopt Biggie 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 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.
