Hot "Paw"gust Nights

Hayward Animal Shelter will hold an adoption event, sponsored by the shelter's volunteers, on Saturday, August 6, 2011. Would-be pet owners can attend Hot "Paw"gust Nights and find the ideal companion. Dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, bunnies and other cute critters, including a turtle, are looking for good homes. Kitten season is in full flow.

For this event, all dogs adopted will have a microchip fitted at no cost, so the adoption fee will be reduced by $15. Adoptions of adult cats, aged a year or older, will be $20 (spayed/neutered, fitted with a microchip, shot and cardboard carrier). Adopt one kitten at the regular fee and adopt the second for $20.

Hot "Paw"gust Nights will also be held at the PetSmart store at the Bayfair Center at 15555 E 14th Street, San Leandro, on the same day and during the same hours, though there will be fewer animals to see.

For those unable to attend this adoption event, Hayward Animal Shelter's regular hours are 12 - 5 p.m., Tuesday through Friday, and 11 a.m. - 5 p.m., Saturday. The shelter is closed to the public on Sundays and Mondays and on the last Saturday of the month, except to people searching for lost pets.
