Pineville councilman saves lost dog, local business opening doors for displaced pets
District 4 councilman Tom Bouchie with the City of Pineville saved a dog following the Monday’s storm.
Bouchie said he was at the Chevron gas station by Donahue Ferry and Edgewood Drive when a lost puppy found its way inside his truck.
After taking the puppy to the Pineville Animal Hospital, Bouchie is hoping everyone will consider taking any lost pet they may find to a local shelter or animal hospital.
To make those efforts easier, a local animal business is taking all animals in that were displaced by the storm.
A-1 Pet Boarding and Grooming has opened its doors to anyone who needs assistance with pets.
The business said they can house 200 pets and currently have 15 as of Tuesday afternoon, so there's plenty of room.
If you find a lost pet or if your pet needs shelter, you're encouraged to drop them off.
Business Owner, Stormy Wooten, said everything is free of charge.
“We’re taking dogs, cats, we have lizards, whatever bring it on free of charge,” Wooten explained. “We always take care of anybody in the community, and if you’re in need we'll help you. If they have food they can bring it, if not we'll provide it."
The business is opened every day including holidays:
Monday thru Friday: 7:30 a.m. until 5 p.m.
Weekends and Holidays: 8 a.m. until 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. until 5 p.m.
Location: 100 Walker Drive
