The Hayward Animal Shelter is participating in a blow-out weekend adoption event on Saturday, June 9 and Sunday, June 10, 2012 to place all of the Shelter's dogs, cats and rabbits into qualified homes. Free adoptions will be offered throughout the weekend though dog-licensing fees still apply to Hayward residents.
More than 60 shelters and rescues in Alameda, Contra Costa and San Francisco Counties are participating in the third Maddie's Matchmaker Adoptathon, sponsored by the Alameda-based Maddie's Fund. In an effort to empty the shelters, Maddie's Fund will pay each shelter or rescue group an adoption stipend ranging from $500 to $ 2,000 per pet. In 2011, 2,312 dogs and cats were placed in loving new homes during the event; 38 of those from the Hayward Animal shelter.
If you have been considering adding a new family member to your home, this is the perfect time to do so. Save a life and help raise much needed funds. Please join the Hayward Animal Shelter on June 9 and 10, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. for what promises to be an exciting weekend and be sure to share news of the event with friends and family.
This adoption event is sponsored by the Hayward Animal Shelter volunteers. Face painting for children will be available on Sunday for a donation.
