As part of a scavenger hunt called GISHWHES, The Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen, two sisters took the time raise awareness for the Corinne T. Smith Animal Center in Brownwood.

Helping a shelter animal find a home is just one thing on the long scavenger hunt list. 

Holly and Casey Jessup know people don't always have the time to visit the center, so the sisters made flyers of Zuse, a 130 pound Mastiff, and hung them up around Brownwood in hopes of finding him a home.

The administrative manager of Corinee T. Smith Animal Shelter was thankful for the help,

"There are a lot of people who aren't in a position to adopt a pet but it's really cool when somebody goes out of their way to do something special to help one of our little guys or, big guys actually, find a home," said Freda Day.

As of Thursday night, Zuse is still up for adoption. The scavenger hunt ends Friday. GISHWHES has broken five Guinness world records and is associated with Random Acts Charity.
