The first 10 adopters that day will receive a bonus "goodie bag," a professional trainer will be onsite to answer questions, and refreshments will be provided.

Between now and December 9, Foothills Humane has put out an adoption and foster SOS because at least 40 cats and 20 dogs need to find homes. So many strayed, rescued, and surrendered animals have come into the shelter that they are now doubled up. Foothills Humane Society is a private, no-kill shelter that will not euthanize for space. Their only option is sending out an SOS for folks to adopt or foster ASAP.

Adopt a Senior Pet Month

Kate-unsplash.comNovember is "Adopt a Senior Pet Month." Here are just a few reasons why senior pets deserve your consideration. According to the ASPCA:

"While small kittens and puppies may be adorable, older pets are just as loving and loyal as their younger counterparts. Not to mention, adopting a senior animal companion comes with some cool advantages:

  • Grown-up pets don’t require the constant monitoring and training that puppies and kittens do.
  • Many are already housetrained.
  • Since senior pets are fully grown, you’ll be immediately aware of important information like personality type and grooming requirements, making it easier to choose the perfect pet for your family."

This is a perfect time to add a pet to your family. When you adopt an animal from your local shelter, humane society, or animal welfare organization, consider a senior pet!

News 13 Pet Project Adoptathon - Arden, Nov. 10

StuartmilesfdpJoin News 13 at Camp Bow Wow at 5 Airport Road in Arden, NC  for the first ever News 13 Pet Project Adoptathon on Friday, November 10 from 2:30 to 7 pm! News 13 is partnering with seven local humane societies/rescue groups to help animals in this area find a forever home! Animal shelters/rescues need funding to pay for medical bills, food, supplies and labor to care for each of the animals as they become healthy or old enough for adoption. Adoption is the best option because it provides homes for animals who would otherwise have nowhere else to go and makes room for more animals coming through shelter doors every day. By adopting, you are saving a life and enabling animal welfare groups to continue helping the lost and homeless animals of our community.
 
 The animals up for adoption will be there from 2:30 to 6:30 pm. You can come meet them and start the pre-adoption process. News 13 will also be collecting pet food, pet supplies, cleaning supplies and monetary donations for all of the local rescues that day. So mark your calendar to come help local animals in need or adopt a new family member. Dog Tag Art will also be there supporting the event and showing you how to get your new pet or current pet an awesome collar or tag.
 
 Local rescue groups involved:
-Asheville Humane Society
-Blue Ridge Humane Society
-Brother Wolf Animal Rescue
-Foothills Humane Society
-Rusty’s Legacy
-Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation
-Yancey Humane Society

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

StuartmilesfdpOctober... month of cooler temeperatures, turning leaves, pumpkins, Halloween... and shelter dogs! October is the official national "Adopt a Shelter Dog" month, designated by the ASPCA and the American Humane Association. It's a good time to remember that you can find your best friend at an animal shelter.

According to the American Humane Association:

"If you’re thinking about getting a dog, be a hero and consider adopting a rescue animal or a dog from your local shelter. You’ll be saving a life and greatly improving yours. Dogs are amazing, supportive, and heroic companions who can make a huge difference in your world as a best friend, an exercise buddy, someone who can be trained to provide animal-assisted therapy and help those with challenges they may face, or simply be a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day at work.

Your local shelter is the perfect place to find dogs of every type, size, age and personality — all waiting for a loving home. Or if you prefer a particular breed that isn’t currently available at a shelter, go online to find a legitimate breed-specific rescue group in need of adopters like you."

So adopt a shelter dog this month if you can, and if not, encourage a family member or friend to do so!
