Join News 13 and Dog Tag Art for a day of adoption and fun! We are partnering with seven local humane societies/rescue groups to help animals in our area find a forever home.
5 Airport Road
Friday, November 10
4:30am - 7:00pm
Thousands of animals are surrendered, lost, or abandoned in our community each year. They are brought to our local shelters where they are safe until they find a permanent place to call 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 in our community will be there from 2:30-6:30 pm. You can come meet them & start the adoption process. We will have a Pet Project adoption rate of $100 & any dog over 8 years old will have a senior discount of $35! We will be collecting pet food, pet supplies, cleaning supplies & 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 & WNC Veterinary Hospital will also be there supporting the event and showing you how to get your new pet or current pet an awesome collar or tag & how to take care of your new animal.
Ingles Markets also presents showings of the Ultimate Air Dogs! They will be performing at 11:00 am, 1:00pm, 3:00 pm, & 5:00 pm. You won't want to miss it!
