Humane Society of Sedona awarded PetSmart grant
The Humane Society of Sedona's participation in the 10th annual Petapalooza will be partially funded by PetSmart Charities who just awarded HSS with a Community Adoption Event grant for $5000. The purpose of this grant is to help the Humane Society of Sedona participate in Petapalooza with the goal of having over 100 animals adopted.
Placing pets into new loving homes is a top priority for the Humane Society of Sedona (HSS) and HSS is pleased to announce this grant funding as part of its ongoing collaboration with PetSmart to ensure even more animals are adopted.
"We are thrilled to participate in the 10th Annual Petapalooza event with Jackie Bessler and Yavapai Broadcasting (www.MyRadioPlace.com) who have always been great partners for us. With the additional partnership and funding from PetSmart Charities, we know we will be able to get even more animals adopted." comments Birgitte Skielvig, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Sedona.
The 10th annual Petapalooza will be held at the Camp Verde Complex/Community Center Park on March 31 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be hundreds of animals available for adoption, animal related vendors, entertainment such as the Little Dog Races and Canine Musical Freestylers, dog obedience demonstrations, children's activities and food. It is a day filled with family fun.
For ongoing adoption opportunities, HSS has a permanent Feline Adoption Center and on site "Adoption Counselors" located within the store at PetSmart (2356 Arizona 89A, Sedona, AZ 86336), offering cat/kitten adoption services 7 days a week. Additionally, every Wednesday and Thursday between the hours of 1:30 to 3:30 p.m, HSS volunteers are on site helping people select and adopt the perfect dog or puppy.
