Hattiesburg business reaches out to help shelter animals

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Every Friday in January Vardaman Honda on Broadway Drive is holding an adoption event in their showroom with animals from the Southern Pines Animal Shelter.

Volunteers from the shelter bring a few of their adoptable animals to the dealership to put on display. During the event they also take monetary and supply donations for the shelter. Items needed at the shelter include cleaning supplies, old newspapers, blankets, and towels.

This is the second year the January adoption event has been held at the dealership.

"The shelter supplies a whale of the service to the community," said Robert Vardaman, Owner Vardaman Honda. "With pet adoptions the shelter is able to get them out and hopefully find them a home. It also helps bring awareness to the shelter."

Vardaman Honda also makes monetary donations to the shelter for each vehicle they sell.
