Cats, kittens

It’s that time of year, and the shelter is beginning to acquire newborn kittens. There are several available, and although some  are not old enough to be adopted, they can be reserved.
There are also plenty of adult cats at the shelter. All of the cats will be either spayed or neutered, have had their shots and have been wormed. To find just the right cat or kitten for your family, call 245-2579 for more information or go by the shelter at 627 Walnut St. in Arkadelphia.

Shelter needs cat litter, other items
A constant, serious need at the humane society shelter is for  cat litter. The litter is one of the most expensive items needed every day for the care of the cats and kittens. Other items that are greatly needed are trash bags, bleach and dry dog and cat food. Call 245-2579 for more information.
Monetary donations may be made in memory of friends and family members who have cared for animals or in memory of a beloved pet. Send donations to: Humane Society of Clark County, P.O. Box 435, Arkadelphia 71923.
