Randy Freeman, Sallisaw Animal Control officer, introduces an abandoned
border collie mix puppy to the shelter’s new bath tub for dogs.
Sallisaw’s new Animal Care Facility drew a large crowd to its open house on Friday.
Over 50 attended and were treated to a barbecue lunch with beans, cole slaw, cake and other goodies. Volunteers served the lunch and said they worked hard finishing the shelter and getting it ready for the open house.
Visitors were also given a tour of the new building which boasts new kennels and runs, an exercise yard, kitchen, laundry, exam room, and reception area. The grounds also include a new security gate, raised flower beds, and newly resurfaced entrance road.
Randy Freeman, animal control officer, said the shelter has several dogs ready for adoption, including eight-week-old male puppies, both border collie/terrier mixes. He said the puppies were found dumped on a nearby road, but are spunky and lovable.
