Pet Adoption and Vendor Fair

By Nina Krishnan

Interactive workshops, engaging demonstrations, and an opportunity to adopt an animal in need, are all part of Union City Home Depot's Pet Adoption and Vendor Fair on Saturday, September 7. Everyone, including pets, is invited to join in the fun. This event will include a pet adoption drive, vendor fair, do-it-yourself workshops and demonstrations for all ages. Multiple adoption agencies and pet trainers will be present. Activities include demonstrations by Union City Police Department K9 Units as well as information provided by a variety of vendors, including Waggin' Tails, East Bay SPCA, and Behr Paint.

Union City Home Depot Project Manager Madeline Reed and Specialty Assistant Store Manager David Webster came up with the idea for the Fair after Home Depot employees noticed an influx of feral cats in the store parking lot and wanted to help animals in need of a home. Reed and Webster, along with other employees, worked with local animal shelters and adoption agencies to organize the Pet Adoption and Vendor Fair. "We decided to do start this workshop because one of our values is to give back to the community. Because of the circumstances with the feral cats and our partnership with local adoption agencies, we felt this was a positive way we could give back to our community." said Reed.

For the past five years, the Kids' Workshop has been a great success; Union City's Home Depot hopes to have the same success with the Pet Adoption Fair. Participants that bring a can of pet food will be entered in a raffle to win a variety of fun prizes including an elegant doghouse. Children, adults, and pets of all sizes are welcome at the fair!
