Local barn named 'Shelter of the Year'

The Devoted Barn in Newport was named the 2015 Shelter of the Year during the 61st annual Purina Pro Plan Show Dogs of the Year Awards in New York.




This is fantastic news for little ol' Newport (and the Monroe area in general).

I do not know this gal personally but I have been hearing some fantastic positive comments about her and the work she is doing.  Our youngest daughter worked up there for a few days training some of the workers (not sure if they were volunteers or paid...).  She says this gal is just a genuine animal advocate.

I'm going to refrain from twisting the general animal portion of that post.   8)

Thanks BRD for posting that up. It would have made it past me. I pushed it up.
For a change, I'll thank MEN for doing the article. Good local journalism.
They (The Devoted Barn) has a very clean and tidy website also, looks like they know their stuff top to bottom. Hmm, talking about animals, maybe that can be taken wrong.  :o

Just hoping they don't get overwhelmed by the recognition.
