PAWS of NELA and The Newsstar Present "Make a Difference   Day" with Offsite Adoptions  
 
The News-Star and PAWS of Northeast Louisiana are combining forces for "Make a Difference Day" and are hosting a Pet Fair at Petco from 12 PM - 4 PM, Saturday, October 26, 2013.

There will be booths to provide information about pet care, grooming, nutrition, training, spaying/neutering, and responsible pet ownership. We'll provide free microchipping and registration so your pet can be found if lost, as well as pet ID tags and other goodies. We'll have a kids' table with the PAWS therapy (dog) teams and coloring activities.

PAWS also will host our monthly offsite adoption day, featuring adorable pets from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter who need new homes. To view some of the dogs and cats available for adoption, please visit   www.parishpets.petfinder.com .    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.

A highlight of the day will be a Halloween pet costume contest with Petco gift cards as prizes for first, second and third places. To enter the contest, you can either bring supplies for the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter or donate $5 (for shelter supplies).  Needed supplies include:
Towels/blankets/rugs (for bedding),  Rags/towels (for cleaning),  Dishwashing liquid,  Laundry detergent,  Pine Sol,  Bleach,  Mops/Brooms,  Paper Towels,
Puppy/Kitten food (dry and/or canned),  Clay Cat litter (no clumping litter please),  Milk Bone-type treats for dogs, and Toys for cats (jingly balls/catnip toys).

Registration for the pet costume contest starts at 1 PM, with judging at 2 PM.

Our goal is to "Make a Difference" for pets and their owners by providing information about responsible pet ownership and resources available locally.
 
This event is free to attend but donations are always accepted.  PAWS of NELA is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization which is run solely by volunteers
