In addition to being the only animal shelter in the county, Paws and More also does community outreach. Paws and More’s Amber Talbot says they hold educational classes on dog bite prevention. Talbot shares that 83% of children, by their 8th birthday, will have been bitten. The classes teach children how to interact and approach a strange dog.

The shelter also has a senior program where they’ll visit local care facilities to provide enrichment.
