We Love Pets is hosting its 14th customer appreciation event Saturday afternoon.
To make the event extra special The Animal Shelter will have cats and dogs at the store available for adoption. Jody Murray, the executive director of the shelter said that events like this are always good for pet adoption.
"This is a great opportunity for the shelter because we’re obviously all about adoptions and a lot of times the difference in that is having someone see the dog or cat," Murray said.
Murray said that it is a very good opportunity to get the animals seen, but it is also good to partner up with local businesses like We Love Pets. The store will be giving away water and grilling hot dogs. It will also have sales inside the store.
"The good thing about it is if they’re interested in doing the adoption it can all be done here tomorrow, and then if they need anything especially tomorrow there’s going to be reduction in prices and things like that," Murray said. "It’s a great opportunity for us to partner up with the local pet stores and get our animals more visible."
The event is between 11:00 and 3:00 Saturday at the We Love Pets store on Maple Avenue. All proceeds of the event will be donated directly to The Animal Shelter. Mayor Jeff Tilton will even be participating in the dunk tank at 1:30.
