The 30th Annual Carthage Buggy Festival was held on Saturday. Moore County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services had an adoption booth set up at the festival.
The Moore County Sheriff’s Office announced on social media that they had a successful day there with four cats and three dogs being adopted to loving families.
With an annual attendance of approximately 20,000, the Buggy Festival has grown into one of the biggest and best known festivals in the region. Started in 1989, the Carthage Buggy Festival is a celebration of the rich history of Carthage. The Buggy Festival is held each year to commemorate the famous Tyson and Jones Buggy Factory that, from the mid-1800’s to the 1920’s, produced the carriages that were essential to life in rural North Carolina. Saturday’s crowd still came out despite the hot temperatures.

Even though the temperature on Saturday rose to the lower to mid 90’s, the Animal Services’ adoption trailer stayed cool for the animals.
The shelter’s next event is scheduled for Saturday, May 26th at Petsmart in Aberdeen from 10 am-2 pm for anyone who is looking to adopt a pet.
