‘St. Paw-trick’s Day’ pet-adoption event March 16-18
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Fayetteville Animal Services will waive all pet-adoption fees during “St. Paw-trick's Day,” a holiday adoption event running Thursday, March 16, through Saturday, March 18.
Coinciding with St. Patrick’s Day, adoption fees are being waived to help spread the “luck of the Irish” by giving these cats and dogs a chance at a better life.
"Our dog adoption kennels have been staying very full, and we could really use our community’s help in placing these pets into loving homes,” said Brianna Curry, programs administrator.
Animal Services is open for adoption Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., as well as Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The adoption process starts online, where adopters can fill out a simple form. Once the application is approved, adopters are invited to come in at their convenience to find the perfect fit! The whole process may be found on the City’s website: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/539/Animal-Adoption-Process.
The shelter is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave. All pets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and all adopters must complete the normal adoption application and be approved.
