Find a new furry friend this weekend
Submitted By Rhonda Rigenhagen
If you've been thinking about adding a furry family member to your household, there's an incentive to rescue a homeless dog or cat this weekend.
As part of the Maddie's Matchmaker Adoptathon on Saturday and Sunday, Furry Friends' usual $90-350 adoption fee will be waived for families who bring home a pet rescued in Alameda County.
In addition, Furry Friends Rescue receives a stipend ranging from $500 to $2,000 for each adoption. The generous grant from Maddie's Fund enables the organization to save and care for homeless animals throughout the year.
Furry Friends cat showcases are 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the following Fremont locations:
* Petco, 3780 Mowry Ave.
* Petsmart, 39410 Argonaut Way (in the Hub)
Dogs showcase at Pet Food Express, 39010 Paseo Padre Pkwy. (Raley's Shopping Center) Saturday from 12:30-3:30 p.m.
Visit FurryFriendsRescue.org to view available animals. Save time and pre-qualify by completing an online application.
