POMEROY — The Meigs community has been supportive of the new Meigs County Canine Rescue and Adoption Center.
An example is the upcoming event titled, “The Growl Gallery.” This Arts and Crafts Show/Fundraiser will be 2-4 p.m. May 22 at Wolfe Mountain Entertainment, 320 E. Main St., Pomeroy.
“The Growl Gallery” will feature works of local artists and provide an opportunity for attendees to bid on their favorite pieces. The day will also include raffles and door prizes.
Also assisting the center in raising funds is Davis Designs, who are offering t-shirts, tank tops and hoodies for purchase.
The Meigs County Canine Rescue and Adoption Center, formerly known as the Meigs County Dog Shelter, is located at 33133 Hiland Road in Pomeroy.
The adoption fee is $90 for adult dogs and includes first shot, rabies vaccine, spay/neuter and dog license. The fee for puppy adoptions is $100 and includes the spay/neuter fee; a contact is required for puppies not old enough to undergo the procedure at the time of adoption. When the puppy is old enough, they can be taken to the shelter’s local vet. First shot, rabies and dog license are included in the adoption fee. There is a $10 fee per dog to cover the cost of initial vaccine and wormer.
Center hours will be posted soon, and appointments to visit the shelter can be arranged by contacting Coleen Murphy, dog warden, or Dee Cummins, assistant dog warden, at 740-992-3779. Leave a message if no one answers, they are often away on rescue missions.
