PAWS of NELA's Offsite Adoptions at Petco This Saturday

MONROE (Press Release) -- PAWS of Northeast Louisiana will be sponsoring its monthly offsite adoption opportunity for available pets from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter this weekend.

Come see their great variety of adoptable pets at the PAWS’ offsite adoption on Saturday, June 28th, 2014 at Petco in Monroe from 12 pm -4 pm.

On June 17th alone, the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter took in 50 animals!

From historical and current data, PAWS says the number of animals taken into the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter increases substantially in the spring and summer seasons, so it is imperative that the adoptable pets find homes.

Adopting a pet saves two lives: one of the animal adopted and another for the space that adoption created for another pet coming into the shelter.  Since PAWS cannot adopt their way out of this surplus of homeless pets, they would like to remind all pet-owners to have their pets spayed/neutered as soon as the animals are of age.  

If you aren't in the market for a new friend, come get a FREE pet ID tag to help your current pets find their way home if they ever become lost. A collar without ID tags just isn’t enough.

The (cash) adoption fee is $60 for dogs and $50 for cats, and this includes a spay/neuter certificate and 7-in-1 & Bordetella vaccinations for dogs or 4-in-1 vaccination for cats.
