Support the Shelter, Fill Your Heart: The "Friends at the Fort" Adoption Event

Here at Fort Thompson, we're crazy about animals! Just ask anyone around – they'll happily chat about their furry (or scaly!) friends at home. We even have our very own mascot, Ceyda, who might greet you with a wagging tail on any given day.

Our love for animals goes beyond our doors. That's why we're partnering with the Sherwood Humane Animal Shelter for the first ever "Friends at the Fort" adoption event! Finding loving homes for these animals is something we truly care about.

Speaking of caring, our fearless leader Tom is a huge advocate for dogs, especially hunting companions. He even takes Ceyda out on all of his duck hunting adventures!

But here's the thing: the Sherwood Animal Shelter needs our help. They constantly need supplies, and when things get tight, they work with other shelters in the area – that's real teamwork! We want to show our appreciation for their dedication and support animals of all kinds.

So, join us for our "Friends at the Fort" event on Saturday June 1st from 12 - 3! It'll be a fun-filled day where you can meet some amazing adoptable animals and learn how you can help this fantastic organization.

Family Fun Zone:

These are some of the activities you’re going to enjoy while at Friends at the Fort! 

  • Adopt a dog: This is the big one! If you’re able to, we’d love to empty them out and we can’t do that without your help. 
  • Photo booth: A local photographer,  is offering pictures for donations! If you donate while at the event, our photographer will snag some cute pics of you and your pooch with some fun photo props! 
  • Yard Games: Challenge your friends to a friendly cornhole competition or better yet, Yard Connect 4! We’ll have games for you and your family to enjoy. 
  • Bubbles & Coloring: For the kids (or kids at heart), we’ve got bubbles and coloring sheets & crayons with your favorite Fort Dog: Ceyda!

This event is free for all and is happening rain or shine, so be sure to drop by! 

We've got delicious eats, tail-wagging fun, and enough cuteness to make your heart melt faster than a forgotten popsicle on a hot Arkansas day. Whether you're looking to add a furry friend to your family, score a free dog tag (because, let's face it, who doesn't love free stuff?), or just want to escape the house for some good old-fashioned fun, the Friends at the Fort event has something for everyone. See you there, and remember – adoption is the new "it" accessory, so come prepared to accessorize your life with love!
