If the well being of dogs, cats and other household animals are on your radar, a local organization is hoping to get you involved in their efforts.
Second Chance for Pets in DeWitt County is in need of volunteers from fostering pets until they find a permanent home to adopting and other efforts. Heather Wantland with Second Chance for Pets notes they are especially in need of folks to take in their pets temporarily.
Wantland indicates the organization needs an immediate home for a mother-daughter set of small dogs who were relinquished recently. She says they would do best together as they are very attached. She adds they cannot officially be adopted, so they could be a longer term project.
According to Wantland, Second Chance also offers financial assistance to pet owners for things like vaccines or dog food if owners find themselves in hard times.
This Saturday, Second Chance for Pets will have a booth set up at the Copper and Brass Room for their "Jingle & Mingle" event.
Wantland encourages anyone who would like more information about the organization to stop in and see them. They will have information available as well as a few of their pets up for adoption.
