ASHEBORO, NC – A local business spends time training dogs, but this time it's the humans who can't sit still. That’s because the Southern Tails Dog School is working around the clock to help animals in need.

Located in Asheboro, the owners of the dog school were upset after seeing all the damage done in Eastern NC by Hurricane Matthew. More specifically, they were thinking of our furry friends.

On their website it says, “Some of the biggest victims of this storm have been the innocent animals. Many thousands through no fault of their own will be homeless...they are coming into the local County Shelters in record numbers.”

They continued to explain how animals are usually the last on the list when it comes to rescue efforts, so they want to put them at the top of theirs.

The dog school decided to start a drive collecting anything from bleach for disinfection, dog and cat food, towels, blankets, sheets, and crates.

Their plan is to deliver the supplies to shelters in whatever county needs it the most at the end of the week.

If you want to help they are accepting donations at 160 N Park St, Asheboro:

  • Wednesday and Thursday 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM
  • Friday and Saturday 8:00 AM 4:00 PM

You can also call 336-328-0077 or text 336 953-7632 for more information about donating.
