“Love on a leash” was evident at the City Park in Sistersville on Saturday.

Olive Branch Animal Rescue and Refuge sponsored “Paws in the Park”?on May 31, and had a great turnout as several vendors and more than 50 pets and owners were in attendance to support the fundraiser. This event is an annual fund raiser for the non-profit, no kill animal shelter in Tyler County and was well supported by the residents of the community.

During the six- hour event, Microchipping, nail clipping and rabies/distemper shots were available along with crafts, vendors, and baked food items. Pet contests and shows were a hit as was the entertainment featuring “The Dougger”.
