Don’t forget to dress your pet up this holiday season for a chance for them to win a gift basket. Bladen County Animal Control Board is raising funds to benefit Dr. N.W. Midyette Animal Shelter (Bladen County Animal Control and Shelter) in Elizabethtown. The board is hosting a Christmas Costume Contest (for Bladen County pets only) on BladenOnline starting today, November 28.

Dr. N.W. Midyette Animal Shelter, also known as the Bladen County Animal Control/Shelter is an open-door facility providing care for animals.

Also, this month the Bladen County Animal Control/Shelter will be waiving the adoption fee on cats and dogs from December 14, 2020 until December 23, 2020. Pet owners will still be required to pay the $25-$30 vaccination fees on dogs and $15 vaccination fee on cats.

The shelter officials stated, “We hope that this will give more shelter animals the opportunity for a Home for the Holidays.”
