Foster Homes Needed for Fuzzy Friends

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 area. 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.

Shannon Oaks Church hosted “Under the Oaks” an event which was open to church members and the community featuring the following activities: a Silent Auction, a Live Auction, Country Store, complimentary Dinner, Live entertainment, and Door Prizes. Lead Pastor Eric Godwin talked with KSST about the evenings event and history. “Last year’s event raised enough money to pay down our church debt and give a portion to local and global missions. This year we hope to raise enough money to reach our goal of being debt free. We’ve gained so much more in relationships than we have earned in currency. ” Pastor Godwin  explained that his church values and focuses on the relationships that they are able to make in this endeavor as they come together to reach their goal. Auction items were donated by church members, various businesses and leaders from the community. Highlights of the auctions included: hunting trips, beautiful, handmade quilts, craftsman watches, rustic furniture,  wooden crosses, decorative signs, paintings, lanterns and a variety of other eclectic items. The Country store sold jams and jellies, baked goods, and arts and crafts. Chili, gumbo, stew and desserts from the kitchen could also be purchased by the quart to take home. Sydnee Hawkins a Sulphur Springs High School graduate and member of Shannon Oaks choir, North Texas Choral and Haystacks sang several well loved songs to welcome guests and listeners who seemed to float in to the Sanctuary, captivated by her beautiful voice. Next, the Jason Waldon Band took the stage finished up the evening by playing lively songs that put a smile on everyone’s face. It was a family friendly event and everyone had a great time!
