The Humane Society of Greenwood is celebrating the American Humane Association’s National Adopt-A-Cat Month during June. It’s an ideal time to adopt a feline, since the spring and summer months typically bring a surge of kittens and cats to the nation’s shelters. The Humane Society of Greenwood encourages people to enrich their lives by adopting a cat.
The May 4 and 5 adoption event drew over 100 visitors and resulted in the adoption of thirty-nine cats and dogs. The regular $85 adoption fee for dogs and $50 for cats was waived hoping the added incentive would encourage individuals to adopt a pet. All pets were spayed or neutered, vaccinated, heartworm or feline leukemia tested,
The ASPCA, The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, began this important month for animals six years ago and it is now a nationwide celebration of the human-animal bond and of victories on behalf of animals.
The Humane Society of Greenwood wants all to realize that animal abuse and neglect occurs in their own community.
The Humane Society of Greenwood invites you to attend “Bring Your Dog to Bruster’s.” The Spirit Night event will be held at Bruster’s Ice Cream, located at 1204 Mathis Road in Greenwood, on Tuesday, April 24, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. All dogs will receive FREE doggie sundaes and 12% of all proceeds will go to the Humane Society of Greenwood.
