Interact with prospective pets at Adopt-A-Thon
We have some exciting news! PetSmart is sponsoring another Adopt-A-Thon. The Yavapai Humane Society, along with Miss Kitty's Cat House, Greyhound Rescue, Golden Retriever Rescue, Circle L, Lucky Club and United Animal Friends will again join together to participate in this three-day program at the Prescott PetSmart store west of Costco off Highway 69. We will be at PetSmart from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept.12, Saturday, Sept. 13 and Sunday, Sept. 14. Many amazing, adoptable pets will be there for you and your family to meet. We will have dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens of all ages, colors, and sizes looking for loving, lifetime homes. Each animal has been spayed or neutered, and each has their basic vaccinations. While you're attending this event, we invite you to enjoy a free hotdog and soda on us. Our staff and volunteers will be manning the grill all three days, so come hungry!
If you are thinking about adding another dog to your household, we suggest you bring your current dog so you can evaluate the compatibility of the resident pooch with the canine under consideration. We will have a securely fenced "get acquainted" area set up in the parking area that can be used for this purpose. This area will also be an ideal place for you and your family to interact with a dog or puppy you may be thinking of adopting.
This promises to be a fun-filled weekend that enables us to show many pets looking for new homes. All the companion animals that will be available for adoption are deserving of a second chance to be part of a loving family. However, only a sample will be on hand as there are so many looking for new homes. As our community continues to grow, so does the pet population. And we take this opportunity to stress the importance of spaying or neutering your pets to reduce the number of homeless animals.
We hope to see you at the PetSmart Adopt-A-Thon the weekend of Sept. 12-14. Please mark your calendar.
