PAWS' normal adoption process will be followed during this event. You should:
- Bring everyone in the family who will be caring for and/or interacting with your new pet. They'll want to meet him or her anyway!
- Bring any dogs or cats in the family to ensure everyone will get along
- Get ready for hugs and kisses!
There are many adorable cats and dogs at PAWS just waiting for a forever home. Romeo and Mikino (pictured above and at right) are the PAWS Dog and Cat of the Month (respectively), but there are others! PAWS has pictures and information on the other cats and dogs available for adoption on their Web site.
PAWS isn't just offering pet supplies as part of their yard sale, so even if you're not shopping for a pet lover, if you want to support a good cause, stop by! The yard sale will offer a wide variety of items including office items, pet accessories, art, jewelry, lawn/garden items, and holiday items.
