Animal shelter open house set for Saturday

Columbus Animal Care Services will be holding an open house tomorrow from 1 to 4 p.m. at the shelter. That’s at 2730 Arnold Drive near the airport.

Michael Nolting, spokesman for the city, says that you will be able to tour the facility, meet the pets that are at the shelter and find out information about volunteer and pet fostering programs. The city is also looking for donations to fund the adoption medical fund, which pays for health care for pets. No tax money is used for those services

And they are taking donations of items such as food, toys, treats, shampoo, collars, leashes, and cat litter.

Under Mayor Kristen Brown the shelter has moved to a no-kill shelter for adoptable dogs and is headed in that direction for cats.
