Humane Society plans Adopt-a-Thon for July 27
Published 8:54 am Friday, July 26, 2013
Foothills Humane Society was featured on regional TV this week inviting the public to a big event on Saturday, July 27.
All dogs and cats will be available for adoption at the shelter with fees waived for approved adopters. Joe Gagnon from Channel 21, The Morning News, interviewed Adam Hignite and his dog, Macho.
Hignite found Macho at FHS and rescued him. They are now new best friends and inseparable. The public is invited to experience the same companionship that Hignite and Macho have found.
The adoption event is from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 989 Little Mountain Road in Columbus. The “On The Road Crew” usually takes animals from the shelter to area pet stores on weekends to promote adoptions. This Saturday they will showcase the animals at their current shelter home.
Virtually all of the animals at the shelter are current on vaccination schedules and are already spayed/neutered. Additionally many of the dogs have completed a Canine Good Citizen program that focuses on intensive training and behavioral support. FHS has a high number of cats that are ready for adoption. There is a wide variety of animals — dogs and cats — from which to select and give a forever home.
