Home for the Howlidays Pet Adoption and Toy Drive
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Santa Paws is coming to Fayetteville! Fayetteville Animal Services is happy to announce the “Home for the Howlidays” adoption promotion. From November 22 through December 7, adopters who bring in a new, unwrapped toy for a child (age infant to teen) will have their adoption fee waived for any available dog or cat.
“We want to encourage people to embrace the holiday spirit and we also wanted to be able to help another segment of our community in need beyond the homeless pets we service each day,” stated Justine Lentz, Animal Services superintendent.
All the toys donated will be distributed to participants of the City of Fayetteville’s Hearth Program. The Hearth Program is designed to aid those experiencing homelessness and aims to assist with either transitional or permanent supportive housing to qualified applicants. Learn more about the Hearth Program online at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/hearth.
All the available dogs, puppies, cats and kittens will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated prior to going to their new forever home. The normal adoption application process will still apply. Applications can be picked up at the shelter, which is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Avenue in Fayetteville, and are available on the City’s website at www.fayetteville-ar.gov/adoptapet.
