University Students to Raise Funds to End Pet Overpopulation


On Saturday, April 27, you can join senior students in the Education Department of the University of Arkansas as they raise funds to help end pet overpopulation at the first annual Fayetteville Paw Fest event.  The event will be held from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Agricultural Park on Garland Avenue (across from the equine center).

The event will feature fun for the whole family including: live music provided by local band, 'Foley’s Van', raffles for various items, dog/family portraits, beverages, games, and more.  "We are so excited to partner with this student group to help spread the word about the importance of having your pets spayed or neutered," stated shelter superintendent, Justine Lentz.

Donations will be accepted at various locations around the event; however, this is a totally free event!  Pet lovers are encouraged to bring their friends, family, and dogs to help raise money for a good cause.

For every $10.00 raised, the Fayetteville Animal Shelter will provide free spaying or neutering services for qualified low to moderate income Fayetteville residents.
