The Humane Society of Lincoln County is racing to find forever homes for more than a dozen dogs during its Adopt-A-Thon.
The organization said, due to funding, it would no longer double as the county’s animal control at the end of the month. County leaders, in turn, reportedly told humane society officials they needed to be out of their government-owned building at that time.
As a result, the shelter said its staff is scrambling to find families for the dogs — all of whom are fixed, microchipped, and up to date on their vaccines — by Sunday, Oct. 1.
The Humane Society of Lincoln County at 1718 Pulaski Highway in Fayetteville is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Sept. 29, and Saturday, Sept. 30, to find homes for the 13 remaining dogs. All adoption fees have been covered by sponsors, so you can adopt any of these animals at no charge.
