Barney is the pet of the week at the Humane Society of Cumberland County.

The PAWS Resale Store (located in the Big Lots/Kmart Shopping Plaza) is the Humane Society’s (HSCC) main source of income. HSCC encourages the community to donate unwanted household items, clothing, appliances, toys and other resalable items. Large item pick up is available by calling 456-9965. The store is open Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.

HSCC continues to run an adoption event every Saturday, from noon to 4 p.m., at Petco in Cookeville. Our Pet of the Week is Barney. Barney is a 2 y.o. black lab mix who is very playful and friendly. He has been at the shelter a long time and really needs a loving home. It is believed he was mistreated at one time as he has a large scar around his neck, but you would never know it, as Barney loves people and would make a great family pet. A Happy Tails Note — Our adoption streak continues as all of our featured pets to date have been adopted into forever homes. All of our animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and treated for parasites. Visit to see available pets. Phone: 484-9700.
