As summer begins to gradually wind down, the NCSPCA has one more event to which you can look forward! The Adirondack Farmers' Market Cooperative is generously sponsoring this year's annual Pet Fair. This family and pet friendly event will take place on Sunday, August 16th from 10 am until 2 pm at Marcy Field in Keene Valley --rain or shine.
The Fair celebrates the the loving relationships we enjoy with our cats and dogs. The NSPCA hopes that pet owners will bring their dogs and participate in a Pet Parade beginning at 11:30, with a blessing of the animals as its Finale.
Besides the delicacies and crafts offered by the farmers' market, there will be special prizes, entertainment, face painting, and a free kids' lunch. Admission is free, but donations to the Shelter are always welcome. We hope you and your furry family members can come and join the fun!
This week's featured pet is Patches, a sweet tiger-striped cat who arrived at the shelter after her owner passed away. Patches was originally timid and confused when she came to us, but the shelter staff have helped her to adjust to the new environment. She has lots of love to share with a new family! Her round, soft furred face and aqua-colored eyes will win you over when she looks at you.
We hope to see you at the upcoming Pet Fair - but we welcome a visit from you any time! Stop by the shelter today to meet our wonderful animals, and make a new friend.
