On Saturday, August 6th, the Burlington Pet Adoption Center, located at 221 Stone Quarry Road in Haw River, will be buzzing with celebration and as it prepares to save more lives than ever before! The “Saving Lives Adoption Fair” is the kick-off event for the Burlington Pet Adoption Center’s participation in the ASPCA $100K Challenge during which they are tasked with saving the lives of 300 more pets during the months of August, September, and October than they did last year.
The “Saving Lives Adoption Fair” will be held from 10:00am to 5:00pm and will feature numerous activities and incentives to encourage the community to open their hearts and their homes and adopt a new best friend. In addition to half priced adoption fees ($40 for dogs and $30 for cats), the Pet Adoption Center will be offering food, fun, information, and prizes during this exciting event!
Radio station WMAG 99.5 will be broadcasting live with on-air personality Laura Songster from 12:00pm -2:00pm and special guest, Susie, from “Susie’s Law” will be visiting from 3:00pm – 5:00pm. Vendors from PetSmart, Pet Supermarket and Nature’s Emporium will be on hand to share information, coupons, and freebies. Local professionals will be providing information about pet obedience, grooming, veterinary care, wildlife, and much more. Face painting will be offered for children and drawing will be made for door prizes. Chick-Fil-A and TCBY will also be offering their delectable treats for sale throughout the day.
The “Saving Lives Adoption Fair” is the perfect time to adopt a new best friend. Not only will adopters be able to take advantage of half price adoption fees, but anyone who adopts a pet during the event will be automatically entered into a drawing for one of several fantastic gift baskets. All adoptions made during this event and through October 31st will help the Burlington Pet Adoption Center reach its lofty goal of saving the lives of at least 627 pets and having the opportunity to win $100K from the ASPCA.
