Forsan partnership

That moment when a puppy heart connects with a human’s heart, a forever home is found. The Forsan High School Journalism students are working with the City of Big Spring Animal Shelter to help make that connection possible.

City Councilman Troy Tompkins has partnered with a local non-profit to get the animals in the shelter spayed and neutered. In addition, he has reached out to the community to encourage donations to the project. According to information provided by Tompkins and the City of Big Spring, there have been 18 dogs fully vetted and ready to be adopted.

The Forsan Journalism students made a special trip to the City Animal Shelter to meet the dogs, gain a better understanding of their personalities and take some pictures. The students are crafting short bios to accompany the photographs in hopes of highlighting the animals in the shelter and bringing their forever family to them.

For those wanting to adopt a dog, or other animal from the shelter, call 432-264-2372. The Big Spring Animal Shelter is open from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
