Fayetteville Animal Shelter
Some of the 26 animals seized during a search warrant last week in Fayetteville are now ready for a new home.
Officials with the Fayetteville Animal Services division today announced that nine of the dogs and one cat that were taken to the Lib Horn Animal Shelter have been cleared for adoption.
“We have many different types of dogs from this case including a basset hound, chocolate lab, heeler, and smaller companion dogs,” said Justine Lentz, animal services superintendent. “Other medium-sized mixed breed dogs are available for adoption as well.”
Several of the seized dogs came from shelters in Texas and will be transported to Texas-based animal rescues familiar with the animals, Lentz said.
The department is vetting other rescue organizations to ensure the remaining dogs – including seven shar-pei or shar-pei mix dogs that need additional medical treatment and rehabilitation – are placed into a stable, loving environment.
The shelter is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave. and is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
