The booth will include information about animal adoptions, events and the on-going efforts to build an animal shelter on the Henderson Highway. The coalition owns two acres on the highway for that purpose.“We are also asking visitors to the market to donate items that are needed at the present shelter,” Sanders said. “There is always a need for flea treatments, bleach and other cleaning supplies. And donations are always welcomed.” Sponsored Content The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… “There will be someone at the Pioneer Farmers Market booth to answer any questions that people might have and provide information about the Troy Animal Shelter Coalition and the progress being made toward a modern shelter in Pike County,” she said.
