National Dog Day is Today

Barley and Guinness want to remind you that National Dog Day is Friday, Aug. 26. The animal shelters from two area counties will be holding adoptions in two locations. Ohio County Animal Shelter will be at Wheeling Park’s Ice Rink from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., while the Marshall County Animal Shelter will be at the Oglebay Park Wagon Shelter above the playground from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please stop at these locations to see the pets the shelters have available for adoption. You can go to either shelter’s Facebook page to get more information. If you are unable to adopt a pet, but would still like to help, they have wish list of items that can be used in the shelters. If you are looking for the love of your life, and for someone who will love you more than they love themselves, you may just find them at one of these two locations on Friday. Hope to see you there. Remember, adopt, don’t shop.   Dog Fighting is not a sport, it is abuse and needs to be reported to the your local dog warden and/or your local police department. Please don’t chain your animals to trees or dog boxes. This is no life any animal should have. If you see an animal you think may need help, report it. The life you save just may be theirs. Trust me, the local dog warden is more than happy and willing to check out a questionable situation.  They truly care about the welfare of animals. All pet lives matter. Bark on, Bordas Dog Nation, bark on.
