52 Pet Adoptions, New Agility Equipment at the Expanded Dog Park, and lots of Happy People and Pets. Now That’s What We Call a Success!
We want to thank everyone who came out to our Fall 4 Fur Adopt-a-Thon on Oct 26th & 27th and especially those who adopted a new forever friend during this event. With a fabulous 52 pet adoptions (20 dogs, 23 cats, 8 small animals and 1 bird) and then Hamilton the English Bull Dog and Channing the Deaf Pit Bull getting adopted the next week, we are thrilled with the results. The Shelter staff was extremely busy showing adoptable pets throughout the entire event and even had calls coming in at 8:45 p.m. on Sunday night for Hamilton, the Bull Dog. Again, it was incredible to see all those happy faces, both two legged and four legged, going home. Everyone there celebrated each and every adoption and reveled in the happiness. The costume contest was a joy to watch and I can attest, very difficult to judge. Officer McGruff was there again this year to lend a paw and so were 2 members of the Equine Patrol. Thanks to Lt. Pauline Shatswell the demonstrations were wonderful and even more fun to participate in. My Aussie mix learned how to navigate the recently donated agility equipment and he seemed to love it. The micro-chip/rabies clinic was popular again this year as was Minnieville Animal Hospitals’ discounted vaccinations, free nail clipping and wellness checks. We had several vendors there to offer our attendees discounts, freebies and lots of information on everything pet related. Food was plentiful thanks to the Vietnam Veterans Battlefield Chapter 617. All in all, it was a great 1st Anniversary event and we wish we had enough room to thank everyone who volunteered, staffed and participated. We are looking forward to planning our 2nd Anniversary Fall 4 Fur Event, and we welcome any and all volunteers or suggestions?
