Local dog show collects donations for county animal shelter


TAZEWELL, Va. (WVVA) – Tessa’s Precious Paws at Tazewell hosted a week-long drive-in for supplies for the county animal shelter.

The week ended with a pet costume contest where the only entry fee was donations to the shelter.

“There are a lot of fur babies at the animal shelter who don’t have anyone to care for them. And we love doing things that take care of these animals and give a little something back to the community. said Tessa Morphis, owner of the company.

The salon also doubles as a retail store called Southern Lace and Grace, which offers a variety of clothing and accessories.

The salon and boutique are open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
