Adoptapalooza Saturday – It’s not too late

18 Apr

It’s not too late to sign up — we already have 16 organizations on the list, including McKamey, HES and the Pet Placement Center.

And yes, you can adopt out animals (including cats) on the spot if you like — but you don’t have to, you can use the event for PR and marketing. Tents are recommended but not required. Hours are 10 to 4; setup starts at 8 am.

Adoptapalooza, a pet adoption and education event, will be held on Saturday, April 21, in Renaissance park on Chattanooga’s North Shore.

All animal-oriented organizations in the area are invited to participate, both profit and non-profit, including animal shelters, rescue organizations, adoption centers, spay/neuter organizations, veterinarians and other animal health groups, businesses, animal trainers, and those who provide services for animal lovers and adopters.

The event will be held on Saturday April 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Renaissance Park on Chattanooga’s North Shore, in conjunction with Outdoor Chattanooga’s Outdoor Expo and Gear Swap in nearby Coolidge Park.

This FREE event will be open to the public. Information about pet adoption,  spay/neuter, microchipping, dog licensing and other pet-related services will be available. And we hope to feature some doggie-related entertainment, such as disc dog performances and dog training instruction.
