Black Friday Hacks Fort Smith, Arkansas

1. Sign up for emails and rewards programs online for the stores you know you intend to shop. You will receive discounts and exclusive news that stores choose to release in their newsletters. 

2. Avoid the main isles when shopping the stores. They tend to be more crowded and harder to navigate. 

3. If you are shopping at Target, avoid wearing a red shirt unless you want customer to pin you down asking for assistance. 

4. JC Penny and Kohls are among the stores that offer the best Black Friday deals. JC Penny is one of the best for deals on clothes. Kohls is one of the best for toys. 

5. Office Depot and Office Max are the best stores that offer Black Friday deals for computers.

6. Macy's is one of the best stores for deals on small appliances.  

7. Check out the stores before you shop so you know where everything is. 

8. Shop with discounted gift cards from

9. Most of the sales at large retail chain stores, can also be found online.

10. Drugstores like Walgreens have great stocking stuffer deals.

11. Use price comparison apps to avoid overpaying. 

12. Download the ScreenPay app - it's a free Android app that pays you to get discounts and deals!

13. Shop early. Some Black Friday prices increase by the hour. 

14. Here are some things to count on skipping because you can find better deals throughout the year that are actually not on Black Friday: bedding, plane tickets, treadmills, gift cards, name brand TV's, 2016 cameras, jewelry, holiday decorations, winter clothing, 

15. Don't forget Cyber Monday is November 28, 2016. If you are like me, and you aren't into massive crowds of overly-eager extroverted people, you might prefer to spend the day shopping online instead!

Rath Auto is Sebastian Co. Drop Off Donation Center

As most of you know, our Sebastian County Humane Societ is in need of serious help right now. Rath Auto Resources is now an official drop off location for donations of cat litter, dry dog food, dry cat food, treats and pet beds until August 31st. Please bring them by and help our shelter as it faces the potential of a shut down due to finances.

Featured: Lizzy Rath - Siberian Husky adopted from the Sebastian County Humane Society in 2012.

Location: 4515 Towson Avenue, Fort Smith, Arkansas.

"Citing a decline in donations, the struggling Sebastian County Humane Society is in danger of permanently shutting down next month, according to its executive director.

“We now have $3,000 left in our account,” Executive Director JoAnn Barton said, “and it had $250,000 in it this time last year.”

A third of the nonprofit organization’s $60,000-a-month operating costs come from impound contracts with Fort Smith, Sebastian County and Crawford County, Barton said. Another 10 percent comes from adoption fees. The lion’s share, she added, comes from the community.

“Donations are down,” she said. “We struggle with what we have.”

The shelter doors at 3800 Kelley Highway could close within the next 30 days without intervention, Barton said.

“Fundraisers are not enough,” she said. “People need to give, and they have to make it a regular donation. People need to dig deep down and ask themselves why they can’t give. I don’t know what the answer is.”

To stay afloat, the shelter has over the years relied on dwindling funds from a savings account.

“We are a safe place for dogs and cats and other animals to be brought to, and it would be a very scary thing to not have the shelter here.” Humane Society Special Programs Coordinator Amber Neal said. “We need that community involvement and donations to survive.”

The Humane Society has been operating in Sebastian County since 1937. Today, the shelter houses an estimated 7,000 pets and potential pets a year, holding 300-400 animals on any given day. The Humane Society takes in stray dogs and cats, injured animals and pets whose owners are either unwilling or unable to take care of them. Also on the intake list are rats, rabbits, ferrets, horses and other animals in need of shelter.

Fundraisers are periodically held to support the Humane Society. Earlier this month, a canine beauty pageant called Cause of Paws Bark-b-que raised $20,000, according to Humane Society leaders. Another event taking place this month is the Fort Changers 5K, a charity race in which participants can donate food, cat litter and other supplies to the Humane Society. It will be held on Aug. 29.

The city of Fort Smith spends an estimated $300,000 each year to house its strays at the Humane Society.

Should the Humane Society close, the animals will be transferred to other outlets for adoption, Barton said. PetSmart, for example, has a charity program called Rescue Waggin’ in which animals from closed or overcrowded shelters are relocated to other areas for adoption.
