Area Animal Shelters Reach Out with a Helping Hand during National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week November 2nd -8th

November 2nd - 8th was National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week.

 As the Animal Shelters in the area celebrated special thought was given to the Newest Animal Shelter in the Area, Hyde County Animal Shelter. 

The Hyde County Animal Shelter is run by a one man operation, J.M. Eakes and was established August 1st 2007.Donations were abundant this week & so greatly appreciated.

 The Animal Lovers Assistance League, Inc. operators of the Currituck County Animal Shelter remember what it was like when they took control of the Currituck County Animal Shelter on July 1st, 2005. 

The Animal Lovers Assistance League, Inc. received help from the Elizabeth City Animal Shelter at that time and now thought it was appropriate to give back as they had been given too. The Animal Lovers Assistance League was a large donator to the Hyde County Animal Shelter.

 Their donations included a large bag of towels, a large bag of blankets, 5 bags of dry dog food, 4 cases of Pedigree Can dog food, 4 cases of Little Caesar’s dog food & 3 cases of Whole Meals. Ginger Sikes, Director of the Animal Lovers Assistance League thought it appropriate to include the Hyde County Animal Control with donations as she planned the Currituck County Animal Shelters Appreciation Luncheon that took place on Thursday November 6th for the dedicated workers at the Currituck Animal Shelter. 

The Outer Banks SPCA operators of the Dare County Animal Shelter also made donations to the Hyde County Animal Shelter on November 6th.Donations from the Outer Banks SPCA included a large bag of towels, a large bag of blankets and 100 lbs. of kitty litter.
