“There are so many pets in need of a loving forever home so we’re hoping to see a large turnout this weekend,” said Commissioner Jon Young, liaison to the animal shelter. “If you can, consider opening your home to a new dog or cat.”


Best Friends has partnered with over 600 shelters and rescues for this holiday campaign. The three previous adoption weekends resulted in over 25,000 pets finding loving families nationwide.


The shelter is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.P
