Where: Little Shelter, 33 Warner Rd, Huntington
When: Saturday & Sunday, August 17th & 18th
One hundred puppies and kittens are making their adoption debut at Little Shelter’s Pet-A-Palooza. With such variety in color, breed, age, and size, Little Shelter is anticipating eager families to be waiting at the gate Saturday morning to be the first to adopt. Around three thousand guests from the tri-state area come to this annual event, but this year’s adoptees are looking cuter than ever and are expected to bring out even larger crowds.
Besides puppies and kittens, Little Shelter also has hundreds of dogs and cats of every variety who will be up for adoption. “One of the amazing things about this event is the adult and senior dog and cats have a way of stealing the show. People come out to meet the puppies and kittens, but ultimately adopt an adult instead. Every year we see a number of our senior and overlooked companions adopted through this event,” commented Little Shelter Executive Director David Ceely.
The fun and excitement doesn’t stop there, all weekend long there are many activities for the whole family including a kids corner, food, a Blessing Of The Animals, and more. The weekend concludes with the live drawing of Little Shelter’s infamous Chinese Auction. Known as one of the largest in the country, this auction boasts over 300 prizes.
Pet-A-Palooza is a free event that is open to the public and is both kid and pet friendly. Those interested in adopting a puppy or a kitten are encourage to arrive early.
