Friends of Pocahontas Animal Control say recent donations will save lives

POCAHONTAS, AR (KAIT) -

A group of animal lovers in Pocahontas hope that you can help them put one of their new donations to good use.

Recent cash donations helped the Friends of Pocahontas Animal Control purchase two 10 x 10 collapsible kennels.

FOPAC volunteer Sandra Bryant told Region 8 News that the kennels will help those willing to foster animals but might not have the room to do so.

"They don't have a fenced in yard, they may have where they can't take them in the house because they have animals themselves, so that gives us somewhere for them to keep them," Bryant said.

Bryant said donations like these make a huge difference.

"When an animal gets out there, whether they're surrendered or they're picked up by animal control, they have 14 days to get out alive," Bryant said. "The kennels get us someone to foster them until we find rescues so basically, it saves their lives."
If you are interested in making a donation to the Friends of Pocahontas Animal Control, you can contact Tammy Brasfield at (870) 273-6332.

Bryant explained that FOPAC, a 501c3 organization, is always in need of physical and monetary donations.

Donations can be mailed to:

Humane Society of Randolph County, Inc

Post Office Box 364

Pocahontas, AR

72455

PayPal donations can be sent to rchumanesoc@gmail.com

If you wish to save an animal at the Pocahontas Animal Control from being euthanized, you can do so through adoption or foster care.

The FOPAC Facebook page features animals currently at Pocahontas Animal Control who need rescued. The page also features "success stories" of animals that were rescued.
