Have A Heart Pet Shelter seems to make life easier for animals


Across the United States, there are organizations that are trying to make life easier for stray animals by providing them with shelter and finding loving homes for them. One local organization is the Have A Heart Pet Shelter located on Arkansas Highway 202 in Yellville.

Have A Heart vice-president Cathy Manser appeared on a recent episode of Talk of the Town on KTLO-FM, and she says the shelter is a 100% volunteer-driven non-profit.

The Have A Heart Pet Shelter has many ways to receive support from the community. Her thrift store is open during normal shelter hours Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and all proceeds go towards the care of her cats and dogs. The shelter also receives donations of money, blankets, food and cleaning supplies.

Manser says another way a resident can help is by becoming a dog walker.

Have A Heart is also a partner of various other organizations, including the Community Cat Project. There is also a collaboration with the Low Cost Spay / Neuter Clinic by organizing the event three times a year.
