For immediate release

Dog Adopt-a-Thon to be held at Moncton SPCA October 24-25

MONCTON, N.B. – Big dogs. Small dogs. Black dogs. White dogs. There’s something for everyone at the Moncton SPCA. October is Adopt-a-Dog Month, so we’re holding a Dog Adopt-a-Thon and Open House on Friday, October 24, from noon to 6 p.m., and Saturday, October 25, from noon to 5 p.m. in order to find as many homes as possible for the many dogs we have with us.

“This is a wonderful opportunity to come to the shelter and take a look at our animals,” says Nanette Pearl, Director of Operations at the Moncton SPCA. “Adopting a dog will not only change the animal’s life, but yours, as well. Come see us to find your new four-legged friend.”

During the Dog Adopt-a-Thon and Open House, several volunteers will be on location to speed up the adoption process, however clients will still have to follow our usual adoption process and verification of references. People can still get a head start on the adoption process by filling out a form as soon as possible. These are available at the Moncton SPCA, 116 Greenock Street, or online at www.monctonspca.ca. Completed adoption forms can also be e-mailed or faxed. Once an application is approved, all someone has to do is find their perfect doggie match from those available at the shelter.

Of course, cats, kittens and other small animals will also be available for adoption during the event.

For more information, please contact the Moncton SPCA at (506) 857-8698.
