Carroll County Humane Society in Need of Items

McKenzie, Tenn - Carroll County Humane Society are in need of a few things... First, peanut butter. Yes that sounds trivial, but peanut butter is a great way to give meds to dogs and they also LOVE peanut butter slathered inside their kong toys to keep them busy when they wake up from their afternoon nap.

Second, they are running low on dog treats and have 2 special requests for them. The large bags of Ol'Roy "Dinner Rounds" are perfect just as a small treat before bedtime at night and for rewarding good behavior during "school." However, a few of the dogs complain at such a paltry snack and prefer the large Milkbone biscuits. So, bags of "Dinner Rounds" and Milkbone large biscuits sure would make the pooches happier.

Third, Rousey - the special needs puppy with the problematic cerebellum - loves stuffed animals when she is sleeping in her pack-n-play or out on her yoga mats during toddle time. Any stuffed animals needs to be able to be thrown in the washing machine. If you are cleaning out closets, please send any washable stuffed animals Rousey's way!

Any of these items can be dropped off at our shelter building at 21822 Hwy 22 in McKenzie between 8:00-1:30 M-F or 10:00-3:00 on Saturdays. Thanks in advance!
