PAWS 30/30

The holidays are over and that feeling of seasonal charity slowly fades, but the Rutherford County Pet Adoption and Welfare Services is giving you a chance to help yourself and another by adopting a hard to adopt animal. In many cases these are older abandoned animals or ones with special needs. Keep that warm feeling going by helping a furry friend find a safe and loving home.

The four legged friends at Rutherford County Pet Adoption and Welfare Services are excited to announce a new 30/30 program for adoptable pets. Any dog or cat that has been in the shelter for 30 or more days will have their adoption fee reduced by $30. “Just because I have been in the shelter for a longer period of time, does not mean that I am any less deserving of a loving, forever home,” states Chance, a four year old Walker Coonhound located in Kennel D21. Chance entered the shelter as a stray and has been searching for his new home. Chance goes on to say, “While I have enjoyed my time here at PAWS and appreciate the care I have received, I am ready to meet my new family and open up kennel space for another deserving animal. The staff at PAWS is excited that some of my kennel mates have been recently adopted and would love to see more animals adopted through this exciting new program.” 
Rutherford County Pet Adoption and Welfare Services is located at 285 John R. Rice Blvd, Murfreesboro. Their hours for adoption are 12-5:30 Monday-Friday and 11-1:30. On Saturdays. They can be reached at 615-898-7740.

The SPD needs your help

The Smyrna Police Department is requesting the public’s help in locating a suspect on counterfeit money.  On January 11th  at approximately 2:50 PM an Asian or light skinned black male entered the GNC store located at 801 Industrial Blvd in Smyrna. He made an eight dollar purchase and paid with a counterfeit $50.00 bill. He left the store and returned within a couple of minutes and got change for another $50.00 bill which was also counterfeit. The same male also went into the Game stop and Dress Barn in the same shopping center and attempted to get change, he was unsuccessful at those locations. This male is said to be in his 20’s, 5’10/180. If anyone knows the identity of this individual please contact Detective Allan Nabours with the Smyrna Police Department at phone number (615) 459-6644.

Sadly most 'smart' criminals do not do crimes near where they live, so I suspect in the future an Antioch or M'boro resident might be arrested for this crime. Even with that in mind, you might know them somehow and with that knowledge you could help a local store find justice.
