From Friday through Sunday, October 18 through 20, the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society will join 38 other organizations across the country in hosting an ASPCA “Mega Match-a-thon!” The local shelter’s goal for this second annual event is to find new homes for 200 or more eligible animals.
During this three-day event, dozens of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens of many different breeds, sizes and colors will be at the shelter waiting to meet you. All pets will be spayed or neutered, micro-chipped, and up-to-date on vaccinations before going to their new homes; they will also leave the shelter sporting a new collars, leashes and personalized ID tags, courtesy of the ASPCA.
Regular adoption fees will be waived on all adult cats (ages six months and older) and adult dogs (ages one year and older) throughout the three days. Adoption fees on younger pets will be as follows: $100 for kittens (under six months); $300 for puppies (under six months) and $100 for dogs (six months to one year). Discounted adoption fees will not include “VIP Pets.”
The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society is located at 55 Strawberry Avenue in Lewiston. To learn more about volunteering at the shelter or adopting an animal, call 783-2311 or see www.SavingPetsInMaine.org.
