Valentine's Day might be over but what of the animals at the Hayward Animal Shelter who need a loving family? Kittens, cats, dogs, puppies, rabbits and other cute critters are searching for new homes.
A new addition to the household will bring joy and comfort to those who pay a visit to the Shelter's adoption event, sponsored by Hayward Animal Shelter Volunteers, on Saturday, February 19 from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. Adopters and adoptees will provide each other with valuable companionship.
Dog and cat fees include sterilization, shots (not rabies), a microchip, a cardboard carrier for cats, and a license for dogs if the adopters are Hayward residents. If the adopter lives outside the City of Hayward, the license fee is deducted. If a pet enters the shelter already spayed or neutered, the fee is reduced because the shelter does not have to subsidize the procedure.
In addition to choosing a pet, there will be fun for the entire family with games for children and a raffle.
In recognition of Spay Day USA (February 22), the spay/neuter fee will be waived for all pets adopted at this event. Free spay/neuter vouchers, generously subsidized by the Hayward Animal Shelter Volunteers, will be available for owned dogs and cats in the City of Hayward (limit two per household).
