Adopt a furry friend
Submitted By Christina Gin
ItÕs raining cats and dogs!
Pet lovers will have an opportunity to welcome new additions to their household by adopting cats and/or dogs at the Hayward Animal Shelter on Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1. Indeed, pets are considered as much part of a family as any other relative at home. They need the basics such as food and shelter, but more importantly, pets need tender love and care as much as we do.
Thus, the fifth annual MaddieÕs Pet Adoption Days will once again be held to accommodate those willing to take on the responsibility. Qualified homes will be able to adopt for free, and Hayward residents who want to adopt dogs would have to pay a licensing fee. If interested, you must visit the shelter during the week of May 25 to get pre-qualified.
Hayward Animal Shelter will receive an adoption stipend from the event sponsor, MaddieÕs Fund, for every cat and dog adopted during the event. The money will be used for additional care to their homeless shelter pets. If you have a soft spot for pets and would love to get involved with the community, this two-day event is worth spending your weekend at.
