Animal shelter has new hours – Hattiesburg American

Southern Pines Animal Shelter announced its new hours Thursday – a change officials hope will lead to the adoption of more dogs and cats.

The shelter now will be open for adoptions from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. daily, except for Sundays.

“My previous experience in sheltering convinced me that ensuring that the shelter is open for individuals to come after work and on Saturdays was one of the first steps that we could take to get more animals adopted,” said Lara Hudson, the new shelter manager.
