The Colbert County Animal Shelter lost one of their biggest food donors and they need your help.
With a full no-kill shelter, they are just a few days away from running out of food. If you want to help, here are a few ways:
– Donate money or call the shelter to see what kind of food you can donate.
– Adopt, sponsor, or foster a pet.
– Join this weekend’s Dogtrot 5k Run & 1 Mile Fun Run on Saturday, July 13. The event will be held in Muscle Shoals on the TVA nature trails, specifically on the jogging trail; check-in begins at 7:45 a.m. with an 8:30 a.m. start time for the 5k and a 9:00 a.m. start time for the 1 mile fun run. Registration for the 5k run is $25 and $20 for the 1 mile fun run.
Participants will receive their choice of pet goodie bags, water and a banana; additional goodie bags are available with a donation. Dogs are welcome as long as they are on a non-retractable leash.
The shelter’s phone number is 256-381-4073.
