Pet Of The Week
Our PET OF THE WEEK this week (January 28-February 3) is HANK (also known as SNOOPY), a male basset hound approximately 7 years old. He is playful and full of life, he just needs some TLC and a loving home!
All animals featured as a PET OF THE WEEK are spayed or neutered and their first round of shots will be provided for free.
The Clarksdale Animal Shelter appreciates the donations and many community volunteers who spend time with the animals each week! The shelter is open from 8AM to 5PM Monday through Friday at 310 Anderson Boulevard. Contact Rob Harris at (662) 627-7870 for more information.
