Independence Day Adopt-a-Thon offers new furry family members

Published 5:07 pm Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Foothills Humane Society officials think every pet has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Therefore, to celebrate Independence Day, the shelter will host an Adopt-A-Thon on Saturday, July 2 from noon until 8 p.m.
To facilitate true love matches, all adoption fees will be waived for the day. Adult dogs have undergone obedience training while cats are well socialized.
All animals are healthy with up-to-date vaccinations, spay/neutered and micro-chipped. Adoption counselors will be available, along with the FHS training coordinator, to help match applicants with the perfect pet. A “Pick the Right Pup” seminar at noon will focus on how to choose the right pet for your family.
As an added bonus, the first 25 adopters of a shelter pet will receive a coupon entitling them to purchase microchips for all their other pets at a discounted price.
Free hot dogs and snacks will be available. The Adopt-a-Thon will be held in the recently constructed pavilion. The shelter is located at 989 Little Mountain Road, Columbus.
