Come to the fifth-annual “A Paws and Claws Christmas Celebration and Special Adoption” this Saturday, Dec. 16 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Fayette Regional Humane Society’s Adoption Center, 153 S. Main St. in Washington Court House.
Guests will be welcomed with holiday cheer, Christmas tunes, adorable kittens and refreshments provided by volunteers. All those who care about animals are invited to come and meet the cats and kittens, and find out about the important work of the Fayette Regional Humane Society. The Humane Society hopes that some beautiful kittens and cats will find new loving homes during the event before Christmas. Cats and kittens will be available for a reduced adoption fee of $35 for kittens and $10 for cats, which includes all current vaccinations and spay or neuter.
Several Humane Society branded items will be on display for sale, including the new colored hoodies. The 2018 Pet Calendars and Paws Cause Cards will also be available.
“The Paws Cause Cards are only five dollars and have a lot of great discounts to several businesses around town with our newest additions such as Anytime Fitness, Waffle House, The Willow, El Cannon, Buckley Brothers, Two Scoops of Sugar, and Our Place Restaurant,” said Brad Adams, outreach director.
Admission to the event is a gift for the kitties and puppies, such as canned and dry food, catnip, toys and beds. Bring wrapped or unwrapped toys and treats. If you bring a wrapped toy or treat, take the time to sit down with our kitties and watch them unwrap their gift (please do not use the narrow curling ribbon, as it can cause damage to the cats if swallowed.)
Guests may also donate to help homeless, abused and neglected animals, or can bring a contribution to the humane society for animal care supplies.
The feline residents need lots of everyday necessities such as bleach, sanitizing wipes and baby wipes, laundry detergent, paper towels, bath towels, wash clothes, kitty litter and food. Because the Fayette Regional Humane Society is a private, non-profit organization, donations from the public help the society to care for the many animals that needs help.
Adams said this will be the Humane Society’s fifth year holding this event for the public to celebrate Christmas with the animals. “We want it to be a wonderful day for everyone, including the cats who are hoping for the best Christmas gift of all, a new home,” said Adams.
The Fayette Regional Humane Society is a non-profit (501(c)(3), volunteer organization. They receive less than 2 percent of support from governmental organizations and therefore must rely on donations, grants and fundraising to carry out their mission. The Humane Society is the only organization in Fayette County able to respond to calls about abused and neglected and domestic animals, 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
