Nothing completes a family like a new pet and no one knows that better than the local animal shelter.

The Muskingum County Animal Shelter is hosting an adoption event this Saturday at We Love Pets in Zanesville. The event will last from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. and the community is invited to come find a new addition to your family. Executive Director of the animal shelter Jody Murray said that We Love Pets is a great place to host adoptions.

"And this is a good opportunity, We Love Pets has a good location out close to the mall and on Maple Avenue so it’s a little more accesible than what we are, and you can just stop in there and the good thing about being there is anything that you need the staff there will help you get it for your new family member," said Murray.

The animal shelter is busy will all kinds of fundraising this summer. They will be hosting an indoor flea market and any community members who would like to sell products at the event can contact the animal shelter to get signed up. Murray said they hope to continue the event in the coming years.

"The money comes back to the shelter we’re a private non-profit so we do fundraising throughout the year this is just a activity that we have the bingo hall it’s available on the weekends so we came up with this event and we’re hoping that it’s a success so we can continue to have some other events like this maybe 3 or 4 times a year for people," said Murray.
