Adopt-a-thon - May 2008

On Saturday, May 10, we held our Adopt-a-thon event at our Pet Adoption Center. We have great pets available and we always want everyone to know!  Comcast was on hand to film much of the event. Viewers could see our Adopt-a-thon on ICN 5 (local cable channel) fifteen or more times within two weeks!  Great exposure for great pets!
