Adopt a Pet This Weekend at Animal Control Open House
A suggestion—don’t go to the adopt-a-thon if you are on the fence about adopting a pet. Because once you get there and see the animals, you will be bringing one home. It just happens that way. There is no “looking.”
OK, now that you know that up front, here is the information about this weekend’s pet adoption event, courtesy of Anne Arundel County Police spokesman Justin Mulcahy:
On Saturday, October 13, 2012, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Anne Arundel County Animal Control will be hosting an “Adopt-A-Thon”. The event will be held at the Anne Arundel County Animal Control shelter located at 411 Maxwell Frye Road in Millersville.
The event will feature live music, face painting, a reptile display, various rescue groups with adoptable pets, food and refreshments, a demonstration by the Anne Arundel County Police Department’s K-9 Unit, Crime Prevention, local spay/neuter information, educational information and more.
During an adoption event in May, Anne Arundel County Animal Control adopted out nearly 20 animals. The goal is to exceed that number this time. Thousands of homeless pets enter the shelter each year in search of a new family. With the public’s assistance and support, Animal Control can reach their goal of finding homes for over 20 animals and improve the adoption rates at the shelter.
