Cumberland County Animal Regulate Fayetteville pet adoptions vacations

Xmas arrived early for the animals at the Cumberland County Animal Handle shelter.

Pals of Cumberland County Animals, a non-income team, gave each individual animal a Christmas lunch and a stocking stuffed with treats and toys Friday. 

Elaine Smith, Cumberland County’s director of animal products and services, reported that during the vacations there is a slight uptick in animal adoptions, but it is not enough. 

Smith, a certified veterinarian technician, has labored with animals for 4 a long time. She mentioned most animal adoptions transpire in the summer months when animals are obtaining puppies and faculty is not in session.
