With puppy dog licks and kisses, the Humane Society of the Ouachitas (HSO) is once again offering their “Puppy Gram” gift deliveries for Valentine’s Day. Surprise your Valentine with a fun gift at work, school or home,” said Cheryl Murphy, secretary of HSO. HSO’s “Dog-gone Delightful Singing Delivery Team” will deliver your “Puppy Gram” to your Valentine on Thursday, February 11 and 100% of your donation will benefit the shelter pets at Humane Society of the Ouachitas.
For a $20 donation your ‘Puppy Gram’ gift will include a valentine greeting card and stuffed toy personally delivered by HSO’s cheery, singing volunteers, accompanied by a real, adorable, Valentine Puppy from their shelter. (Note: your Valentine does not keep the puppy, but the puppy is available for adoption at the shelter.) Also, a Valentine jingle will be sung to your Valentine by HSO delivery staff. Your Puppy Gram may be anonymous if you wish and Murphy said lots of warm, puppy dog licks and kisses are guaranteed.
Orders will be accepted until 5 pm, February 10. We must limit deliveries to Mena and just outside the city limits. If you are not sure about a delivery location or would like to place an order, call Cheryl at 479-243-0771.
Murphy also said HSO’s shelter, located at 368 Polk Road 50, south of Mena, is full of pups, dogs, cats and kittens waiting for adoption. “How about adopting a wonderful Valentine surprise for your family or yourself who will love you forever? Consider a Valentine surprise of furry love,” said Murphy. Adoption fees are $40 for cats and $60 for dogs. All pets are healthy, have their shots, and are spayed/neutered.
