Drew, a 2 1/2 year-old Shepard mix is just one of many wonderful dogs stuck at the Maumelle Animal Shelter because of the storm damage. A housebroken and gentle male, Drew is available because his previous owners had to move and couldn’t take him with him. But last week’s storm exasperated the situation and the Maumelle Friends of the Animals need your help to adopt or foster a pet or to at least make a donation that will help them save more animals. Drew was at Academics Plus Charter School where MFOA April Thomas brought him to star in a photo with Mrs. Kitty Wilson’s six grade class. But while waiting for the others to show for the photo in next week’s paper, Drew fell in love with all the youngsters who also fell in love with him.
