Sulphur Springs Animal Shelter was on hand Saturday at Tractor Supply from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with an offsite pet adoption event. Volunteers Molly, Cara
and Amber lovingly looked after the various dogs and cats they had brought to the event while answering questions for individuals as they passed through the
Molly spoke with KSST about the needs of the shelter. “Currently, we have 25 volunteers and a few foster families that care for the needs of the animals at the
shelter.” Right now, the greatest need is for families to adopt or foster the dogs from the shelter. Sometimes there is not enough room to accommodate all the
dogs that come in to the shelter. “Foster families make it possible to give animals more time to be seen and get adopted.” Donations are always needed and welcome.
