Paula Sparrow spent the weekend living the life of a shelter dog to demonstrate that the facilities are clean and humane, although small. Her efforts garnered a number of donations, to the shelter including a check for $1,000.
In the dog house - Local woman spends weekend in animal shelter to prove a point


Paula Sparrow’s roommates this weekend included a beagle/shepherd mix named Sheeba and a large pit bull, aptly named Goliath. These weren’t dogs Sparrow had stay at her home. Instead, Sparrow crashed at their place, the Spencer County Animal Shelter.

Spending the weekend living as one of the shelter animals was Sparrow’s way of calling attention to what she said is the good care provided by local shelter employees and volunteers, as well as highlighting the need for a new shelter.
