Animals in Region 8 need forever homes

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

If anyone in Region 8 is looking for a new pet, adoption may be a good option.

The rescue group Arkansas Angels 4 Animals held an adoption event Saturday at Hollywood Feed in Jonesboro.

Several dogs and cats waited to see if they would find their forever home.

Volunteer Ruth Scroggin said they take in stray and abandoned animals, as well as animals that may be abused.

A set of Yorkie Poo's named Jack and Jill were at the adoption event.

Scroggin said they came from a breeder and sometimes that surprises people.

She said a misconception people have is that those pets are always taken care of properly.

“There's a risk that they will end up homeless,” Scroggin said. “As you can tell right now, it's very common to go into animal shelters and working with rescue groups to find homeless animals of all kinds.”

The adoption process includes an application, along with an interview and application fee.

Interviews are done to make sure every animal goes to a suitable home.  

The rescued pets are taken care of and sometimes boarded at the Vetcare Clinic in Jonesboro.

Even if you aren’t interested in adoption, Arkansas Angels 4 Animals can always use monetary or food donations.

For more information on how you can take a pet home or donate contact Angie Heringer at 870-974-2911.
