We were in the office today going over things to write about on this very website when we came across the usual beef in one of the local social groups on Facebook. I totally forgot what the fuss was about, but in the middle of doing our research, we kind of got distracted by that weapon of mass distraction TikTok. It was a worthy one that made us just melt like butter and we're fighting the urge to run to Longview right now.

The Longview Animal Care And Adoption Center Is to Place To Go To Find A New Furry Family Member.

The LACAC is the city of Longview's animal shelter where cats and dogs who are looking for a forever home or lost pets waiting to be reunited with their family are taken to. The Longview PAWS (Pets Are Worth Saving) is a non-profit supporting the center. According to their website, their mission is to raise awareness in our community of the shelter’s immediate and long-term needs, fundraise for the benefit of the shelter animals, recruit volunteers and new supporters, facilitate donation drives, coordinate and implement community outreach efforts as well as serve as an animal welfare resource for the residents of Gregg County.
