Adopt a dog or puppy on “Doggone Friday” or a cat or kitten on “Caturday” at NH Humane Society’s Laconia shelter
Laconia, NH – The NH Humane Society is offering a different type of shopping approach on Black Friday by inviting people to their annual Adopt-A-Thon on “Doggone Friday,” November 23, 2018 where over 30 puppies and adult dogs will be available for adoption at their Meredith Center Road location. Not a dog lover but a cat is what you fancy? On “Caturday,” November 24, the adoption continues in Laconia with more than 50 purring kittens and adult cats ready to meet their new mom or dad. Both events will take place from 11 am to 4 pm on site at the NH Humane Society, 1305 Meredith Center Road, Laconia.
“Our annual Adopt-A-Thon is a hallmark event that our community has come to anticipate, love and greatly support, said Tony Matos, board president of the NH Humane Society. “As a mission-driven organization, we are grateful to be able to bring puppies, kittens and adult pets from miles and miles away to New England where they will find a new home just in time for the holidays.”
An adoption counselor will be on site on both days to interview potential parents, walk them through the adoption process and help pair them with a pet that’s a good match. Current dog owners will be asked to introduce their pet to the new puppy or dog prior to finalizing the adoption.
Regular adoption fees apply and are $395 for puppies, $325 for adult dogs, $135 for kittens and $95 for adult cats. This adoption cost covers medical exams, vaccinations, micro chips and spaying or neutering. Adopters will be able to go home with their new pet the same day.
Local pet vendors will be on site on Friday and a bake sale will take place on both days. To learn more about the annual Adopt-A-Thon contact Karen Bald at 603.524.3252 x 311, Karen@nhhumane.org or visit nhhumane.org.
