Adoption Promotion this Weekend at Heritage Humane Society

Adoption Promotion this Weekend at Heritage Humane Society

There are so many wonderful pets at Heritage Humane Society waiting for that forever family to take them home. These pets deserve a second chance at love, which is why we are so excited to announce our Homeless Pet Awareness Adoption Promotion. This weekend, Saturday February 13 and Sunday February 14, all adoption fees will be 50% off for spayed and neutered pets six months and older.

This is a chance for dogs like Horton, an energetic 1 year old Pitbull mix, who came to HHS in early November, to get a family of his own. He's a clever sweet guy who would do wonderfully in an active family or as a running buddy.

It's also an opportunity for cats like Lily, a 1 year-old girl who runs to greet everyone who enters cat Colony 1. She was returned to us in late May and has been patiently waiting for a new family to add them to their hearts.

This week we hope to bring light to the hundreds of homeless pets, like Horton and Lily, of Hampton Roads. "Hampton Roads Homeless Pet Awareness Week" began on February 8 and during this week we hope to educate the public on all that goes into animals who have found a temporary home at an animal shelter. To show your support for homeless animals stop by the shelter to pick up an orange ribbon. The shelter is open 11-5 on Saturday, February 13th and 12:30-4:30 on Sunday, February 14th.

"By working with many of our partner shelters throughout Hampton Roads, we are able to raise awareness to a whole new level within all of our communities," said Heritage Humane Society's Executive Director, Kimberly Laska. "This is the 2nd Annual Event, and last year, 228 pets found their new home during this wonderful weekend. What a life-impacting collaboration for the pets in need."

For more updates on these animals, the Hampton Roads Homeless Pet Awareness Week and more please continue watching our Facebook page, and our blog postings. Come out and find your true love this weekend at HHS.
