It’s that time of the year. Valentine’s Day is almost here, and love is in the air. What better way to bring some love into your life than to adopt a shelter sweetheart?
The Corinne T. Smith Animal Center (CTSAC) is trying to help make that happen. For two days, Feb. 13 and Feb. 14, most of our adoption fees will be dramatically cheaper. Any dog or cat that was already spayed or neutered when it was brought to us will have a $14 adoption fee. All adult (or nearly adult) dogs, at least six months old, will have the adoption fee cut in half. Therefore, dogs that would ordinarily be $150 will be only $75. All adult (or nearly adult) cats, six months and older, will be only $45 instead of $90.
As usual, for dogs that will include at least one five in one booster vaccination, a kennel cough vaccination, rabies vaccination, microchip, and spay or neuter. Each dog at least six months old will also have been heartworm tested. Cat adoptions will include the spay or neuter, four in one vaccination, rabies vaccination, and microchip.
If you have been considering getting a pet, this is the time. If you’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places, come on down to CTSAC and find a Valentine that will give you a lifetime of unconditional love. What better place to find the dog of your dreams, or maybe a hunka hunka purrin’ love?
CTSAC volunteers are deep in planning and preparation for our Canines, Cats, and Cabernet fundraising event, which will take place March 18 at the Depot Cultural Center. This is our 10th year to hold the event, and each year is better than the one before. This year will be no different.
This year, Canines, Cats, and Cabernet is once again going Vegas style. We will have all the fun of years past...great local food, lots of different wines and unusual beers, live and silent auctions, but we will have another bunch of fun thrown in. In addition to all that, we will have a casino party. There will be blackjack tables, craps tables, roulette tables, poker tables, and authentic Vegas slot machines.
It should be a great night, full of fun. I hope everyone remembers that 100 percent of the proceeds from this event go to caring for the homeless animals at CTSAC. Tickets go on sale Feb. 1.
