MONROE (PAWS) -- As part of the PetSmart Charities’ “National Adoption Weekend” awareness campaign, PAWS of Northeast Louisiana and the Morehouse Humane Society are teaming-up to conduct an additional monthly offsite adoption opportunity of available pets from the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter and the Morehouse Humane Society this weekend.
Come see their great variety of adoptable pets (cats and dogs) at the offsite adoption on Saturday, November 16th, 2013, at PetSmart in Monroe from 12 pm - 4 pm.
The Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter and Morehouse Humane Society are, again, crowded 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 we cannot adopt our way out of this surplus of homeless pets, we would like to remind ALL pet-owners to have their pets spayed/neutered as soon as the animals are of age.
To view some of the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter 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.
