Animal Donations

Dear Editor,

As you know Belmont County Animal Shelter recently experienced a huge amount of damage due to a water pipe freeze and breakage. The three Riesbeck Stores in Belmont County are graciously allowing BCARL to place food donation boxes in the St. Clairsville, Barnesville and Bridgeport stores.

The animals are in need of dog and cat food or treats. The shelter can also use mops and cleaning supplies. The donation boxes will be in place until the end of February.

We would deeply appreciate your donations.

I would also like to remind anyone who has taken in a stray cat in Belmont County and cannot afford the cost of spay/neuter to please call me at 740-338-9339. Our Cat Stray Shun Program would like to help our communities with the cat overpopulation problem.

Spring will soon be here along with litters of unwanted kittens. We would like to prevent this before it happens.

For the animals,

Candace Fleagane
