Dog days begin at Nodaway County Fair

From a pet adoption center to a town getting new sidewalks to citizens being honored, good news is happening all over the area.

Helping the animals

In her 2010 hit song, Florence and the Machine declared the “dog days are over.” For the new Nodaway Humane Society, it’s beginning at the Nodaway County Fair on Saturday.

Hosting a parade with the theme “Dog Days of Summer,” the humane society hopes to shed light on animals in need of adoption at the animal shelter, located at 829 S. Depot St. in Maryville. The society will be collecting donations during the parade.

Registration for the parade will run from 7 to 9 a.m. on Saturday, with the parade beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Fourth Street at the Northwest Missouri State University campus. The shelter will have an adoption booth at the fair on Saturday, where cats can be adopted for $30 and dogs purchased for $40.
