Saturday, May 7, 2011
11:30am to 9:00pm
May is the month of graduations and, to celebrate Be Kind to Animals Week (May 1st through May 7th), HHHS will have its own graduation by hosting an Adopt-A-Thon on Saturday, May 7th. We will be extending our adoption hours in hopes of “graduating” all animals in-care to new homes. Adoptions will take place between 11:30am and 9:00pm.
On this day, adopters will enjoy graduation decorations from J.E. Dickersons, graduation cake and cupcakes from Yum Café and Bakery, activities for kids, a graduation diploma for their new pet and a special graduation gift bag courtesy of Hill’s Pet Nutrition and the HHHS Volunteer Advisory Council.
All adoptable animals will have discounted adoption fees according to their age:
Elementary graduates (pets under 1 year of age) $10 off adoption fee
High School graduates (pets 1 to 6 years of age) $20 off adoption fee
College graduates (pets 7 years +) $30 off adoption fee
Sterilization deposits and spay /neuter fees still apply to all adopted animals.
HHHS holds only two Adopt-A-Thons each year: one in May and one in December. Support homeless pets and please choose adoption.
Animal shelters, such as HHHS, offer a variety of services to assist animals and the public. Among many things, they provide a sanctuary for lost pets, protection from abuse, and health and behavior assessments. One of the most rewarding aspects of an animal shelter is finding new homes for pets. Animal shelters also provide an educational outlet and guidance to assist the public with animal-related issues and concerns, from dealing with training issues to behavior issues.
