Arc plans Open house

Plans for an open house at the Arc Animal Sanctuary are complete. The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, October 14.

On that day, Arc will be offering dogs at a reduced rate and cats by donation. Refreshments will be available, tours of the facility, dog and cat garage sale items for donations and a drawing for a Tractor Supply Center (TSC) gift card.

During October, there is a supply drive in place to stock up for the winter. Items needed are simple green, bleach, paper towels, toilet paper, Clorox wipes, pine sol, surgical gloves, kitten milk/powder mix, sip ties, cat dog probiotics, dog/cat food, hand soap, dish soap, laundry detergent, disposable cat scratchers, kitten/cat treats, copy paper, printer ink black HP 61,scotch tape and duct tape.
