Looking for love? Pets are looking, too
Submitted By Chris Gin
With Valentine?s Day just around the corner, love is in the air. And what better way to share ? and receive -- affection than with a new pet?
The Hayward Animal Shelter can help. It?s bringing out a host of dogs, cats, bunnies, Guinea pigs and even a rooster for its ?All Fur Love? pet adoption event on Saturday, Feb. 10.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. visitors will have a chance to meet and greet with a variety of critters who are looking for forever homes with lots of love. Hosted by animal shelter volunteers, admission is free. The shelter is at 16 Barnes Court, near the Department of Motor Vehicles at Jackson Street and Soto Road.
The cost to adopt an animal is $14 and include spay/neuter service, vaccinations and a microchip. Hayward residents pay a $17 licensing fee for dogs. Special guest Assemblyman Bill Quick also will be on hand. He is partnering with the shelter at this event to offer a limited number of free spay/neuter vouchers to members of his district. For details, call (510) 293-8818 or visit his website at http://asmdc.org/members/a20/.
Also planned will be a Valentine?s Day Pet Booth where people can have Valentine?s Day photos taken pets for $10. Proceeds benefit animal programs.
