On the weekend before Independence Day, the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center will host a free “pet-riotic” adoption event from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 29.
“Our shelter staff does a great job caring for all the animals, but what we really need is for people to open their hearts and adopt a pet,” said Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine. “I encourage anyone who is considering pet adoption to come down to the ‘pet-riotic’ event and give a cat or dog a loving home.”
Dogs and cats adopted at the event will be spayed and neutered, and will receive free micro-chipping. In addition, adopted dogs will come complete with the four-in-one vaccination, rabies inoculation and a license.
Music, games, prizes, goodie bags will be offered and light refreshments will be served. The Shelter is open every weekday except Wednesday from 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The Brookhaven Animal Shelter is located at 300 Horseblock Road in Brookhaven. For more information, call the Brookhaven Animal Shelter and Adoption Center at (6310 286-4940 or visit their website.
