Several artists donated artwork to the newly renovated Moore County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services.

The artists took it upon themselves to paint their way into the hearts of those looking for a new furry friend to love on. Artist painted photos of dogs and cats and hung them on the Moore County Sheriff’s Office Animal Shelter walls. 

“I think it’s great,” said Lieutenant Forrest Kirk. “We greatly appreciate the new décor at the Animal Shelter. It makes for a more welcoming atmosphere hopefully leading to more adoptions.”

The shelter recently underwent remodeling at the end of September and Moore County’s homeless animals were housed at a temporary shelter during the construction of the facility.

The new updates included resealing all the floors of the entire facility, a new animal washing bay, the construction of a new intake room and the installation of a new industrial washer and dryer.

Now the shelter has new artwork for the remodeled site.

Sheriff Neil Godfrey went on to say “Another great example of the importance of relationships. The services we provide the citizens of Moore County cannot be done without the support of our communities. We are humbled and very appreciative that artists would, unsolicited, take the time to creatively paint dogs and cats in such a manner that it would benefit all our visitors at the Moore County Sheriff’s Office Animal Shelter.” 

The shelter is located on 15-501 in Carthage and is open from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm during the week and from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturdays.
