Callie is our featured pet of the week.

Love is one of the easiest and most satisfying emotions we can experience and that loving bond between a person and their pet is a wonderfully unique thing.  Pets show unconditional love in a way that is virtually impossible to get anywhere else.  In showing this love and loyalty, they put their ultimate trust people to take care of them and love them in return. Unfortunately, there are many pets that have been abandoned or abused or find themselves alone for a host of other reasons.  In a continuing effort to provide caring homes for deserving pets, the Heber Springs Humane Society and The Sun-Times have teamed up to showcase a featured pet. 

The featured dog of the week is Callie.  Callie is a Catahoula Leopard Dog, probably purebred, about 60 pounds in weight and approximately 1 ½ years old. She is alert, curious, playful, and strong.  She is a dominant female, but non-aggressive, highly trainable, and full of personality. Her previous owner had to surrender her to the shelter because of a move, but Callie is ready for her own forever family.

     For further information on Callie or any of the other dogs and cats available at the Heber Springs Humane Society, call (501) 362-7322, or visit the Heber Springs Humane Society Facebook page. Right now, Heber Springs Humane Society is having a half-price sale on all of the puppies and kittens: the adoption fee is $25.  If the puppy or kitten has been sponsored, the adoption fee is $15.  Go down to see these precious babies needing their forever homes.

     The pictures taken for this column and most of the pictures on the Facebook page have been taken by Lee Wallace, who has volunteered her time and her talent in support of the Heber Springs Humane Society.  Please remember to spay and neuter your pets.
