— — An adoption event was held at the Mercer County Animal Shelter Dec. 19-23, 2013. Approximately 106 animals were adopted. Ron Martin of Grants Supermarket provided the adoption fees for funding to pay the adoption fees for these animals.

The Mercer County Commission would like to express our gratitude to Mr. Martin for the generous donations made during the adoption event and throughout 2013.

We would also like to thank the shelter staff and volunteers for the efforts they put forth during the adoption event and through the year.

They are committed to providing the best possible care from the time an animal enters the shelter until it gets adopted or rescued.

We encourage anyone looking for a new pet to visit the Mercer County Animal Shelter. There are lots of dogs and cats  waiting to find a loving family and a forever home.
