The Washington County animal shelter is open 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. The shelter stopped opening every Saturday because fewer people were coming to it, according to Lester C. Howick with the shelter. It is now open from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. the third Saturday of each month. The first Saturday of each month pets are at The Whole Pet in Springdale. The second and fourth Saturdays animals are available at the Fayetteville Farmer’s Market or Tractor Supply.
