Macon Purrs N Paws is having an open house and adoption event Dec. 22 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the shelter, 1546 Rocky Creek Road. The MPNP cat shelter is in the small shopping strip behind McDonald's restaurant. In addition to many cats and kittens of all ages, sizes and colors, MPNP will have some of their adoptable dogs out in front of the shelter, including some sweet little chihuahuas.
All About Animals will have its Saturday adoption event at its shelter near Central City Park. The shelter, at 101 Riverside Drive, is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday and by appointment at other days and times. The group also holds dog adoptions at Macon PetSmart on Sundays from 12:30 to 5 p.m., and cat adoptions at Warner Robins PetSmart from 5 to 8 p.m. Sunday through Tuesday.
Both Macon Purrs N Paws and All About Animals have pulled hundreds of animals from the high-kill animal control facility. Because of this, and to keep their life-saving efforts going, both rescues appreciate donations of dog and cat food, kitty litter, blankets, cleaning supplies and, of course, money that enables them to pay for medical treatment, flea and heartworm preventative and spay/neuter surgery.
Call to coordinate drop-offs of materials, food or supplies. Macon Purrs N Paws is at (478) 719-5808. All About Animals is at (478) 621-5116. Please be patient if you get voice mail, and leave a message. Someone will return your call, usually the same day. If the volunteers are busy pulling animals or transporting them to the vets or foster homes, they may not be able to call you back for a day or two.
You can also mail donations directly to Macon Purrs N Paws at 326 Harvest Walk, Macon, Ga. 31210.
