Pawsitive Alliance to Host Shelter Open House this Weekend!

October 4th, 2017 by Colleen Williams

Over 30 Washington State animal shelters​ ​will be opening up their doors to host an Open House and bring community members in as honored guests.

On Saturday, October 7th, our partner Pawsitive Alliance is hosting the Shelter Open House taking place in animal shelters across Washington. If you’re in the Washington state area, join the party and take a trip to your community animal shelter for tons of fun activities such as raffles, giveaways, themed parties, and even adoption specials. By getting together, you’ll see the great work your community’s animal shelter is doing for pets in need.

“There are many animals in local shelters just waiting for their forever homes,” says Amy Ferguson, Executive Director of Pawsitive Alliance. “There are so many dogs and cats of different breeds and personalities! Statewide Shelter Open House wants community members to know that they can go to their local shelter and find their perfect animal companion.”

The goal of the statewide Shelter Open House is to raise awareness of animal shelters across Washington and the homeless animals in their care, and to help those pets find forever homes.  So come out, visit the cats and dogs, take some pictures, share with your friends, and help homeless pets get adopted. You just may find your new best friend.
