This is going to be an exciting day for all! We are planning on having up to 30 rescue groups and shelters in attendance. Many have indicated that they will reduce their adoption fees for this special day. Don’t miss your opportunity to find that special pet and give them a second chance at life. All who adopt or fill out applications to adopt (and are approved), will receive a complimentary canvas tote bag filled with pet related items, a souvenir Pet Connection key chain and a certificate for $75 in free health care at The Animal Hospital to offset the adoption fee. Pet Connection will also be donating $50 towards the adoption fee. We have a supply of bags that will be available for purchase on that day and in the future at The Animal Hospital for $15. All proceeds go to Pet Connection. In addition to finding forever homes for these pets, PLEASE consider bringing pet food donations and towels/blankets (new or used) to help the local shelters.

This event will be catered by our good friends at Creo’
, and Bountiful Bread

Additionally, there will be live music all day courtesy of Vinnie Leddick
from the Sagamore Hotel. This will also be your opportunity to tour a state of the art veterinary hospital. You’ll be able to see the Laparoscopic surgery suite, meet the doctors and staff and observe a Golden Eagle housed in their flight cage. This is a rare chance to see the amazing care your pet will receive with the compassionate staff. All who take this tour will receive a gift bag including a certificate for a free exam to any new client at the hospital. Local vendors will again be on site offering advice and coupons for services. In addition to the raffles to help raise money for Pet Connection, there will also be a grand prize raffle (free to enter to all who attend our event). Local businesses have already donated over $6,000 in raffle and auction items!
I also want to thank CW Whalen & Sons
for supplying large tents to protect us from the sunshine or rain. They were awesome during my Backyard BBQ’s this season! By the way, if the weather is bad (needs to be raining pretty hard), the rain date is July 21st. I hope to see all of you there! It’s going to be a fun day and we will help so many pets in need. Please remember, that you do not need to be looking to adopt to come out and support the cause. There is even a chance that Elisa Streeter will stop by with her dog to share in the fun with us!
