Art is one of the wonderful parts of the human experience — but sometimes it can be even more.

In the case of the Meigs County Canine Rescue and Adoption Center, supporting local art is not only an important aspect of creating a sense of community in the area, it’s also a creative way to raise funds for the new dog shelter.

On May 22 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. the organization will hold their first ever “Growl Gallery” in the grand ballroom at Wolfe Mountain Entertainment, 320 E. Main St. in Pomeroy, an arts and crafts show fundraising event showcasing specifically local artists.

“This is a great event because not only do all of the proceeds go back into the shelter, it also gives local artists an opportunity to show their wares,” said Dee Cummins, the Meigs County assistant dog warden. Cummins works under Coleen MurphySmith, who is currently the head dog warden in Meigs County.

Cummins explained that the $100 adoption fee associated with picking up a pet from the group (which has taken in 320 dogs so far in 2016 and which currently houses around 32) includes not only a new pet for the owner — but that animal’s spay or neuter, wormer, DHpp shot and dog license.

Cummins said that there will be raffles, door prizes and kid’s games galore at the event. For more details, check out the organization’s Facebook page or call 740-992-3779.
