Adopt That Cat Or Dog This Weekend -- You Know You Want To

If you've been thinking about adopting a dog or cat, but just haven't had the time to make it happen, here's something that you'll have a hard time making an excuse to miss: Friends of BARC is holding a "Wags to Whiskers" adoption drive June 20, from 12-4 p.m. It's at BARC, 3200 Carr.

The generous half-price $27.50 adoption fee includes vaccinations, spay/neuter services, and microchipping. Plus, you'll be fed: The FoB folks will have plenty of hot dogs and soda on hand.

FoB prez Mike Kinsella told Hair Balls that 26 pets were adopted out at last month's event, and the good news is that plenty more of these adoption drives are planned for the rest of the year. Starting in July, the plan is to hold an event every second Sunday and every third Saturday. That should allow a ton of animals to be saved.

(And BARC, as we've shown this week, needs all the help it can get.)

"The shelter has an ongoing list of needs, many of which can be helped with more volunteers... [for] on-site, for staffing at off-site adoption events, and as foster families," Kinsella stated in a press release.
