AUSTIN -- This weekend the Austin City Council will proclaim June 22 Love Your Rescue Pet Day.
In celebration of the special day honoring rescue animals, the Austin Humane Society will offer free adoptions in addition to fun activities.
“Love Your Rescue Pet Day is a great way to celebrate every organization in Austin that rescues animals in need,” says Frances Jonon, AHS Executive Director. “This Saturday is a perfect opportunity to take home a loving shelter dog or cat and experience for yourself the joy that comes from adopting.”
All adoptions will be free. Potential adopters will be required to fill out an adoption application and screenings will proceed as normal. Adoption counselors will be on hand to assist potential adopters.
AHS will have a photo booth on site to allow adopters and their new furry friends to pose together. The photos will be free to AHS adopters and available for download.
Participate in AHS' Love Your Rescue Pet Day Saturday June 22 from noon to 7 p.m.
The Austin Humane Society is located at 124 W. Anderson Lane, Austin, 78752.
