Annual Pet Adopt-a-Thon in Sherman

5-6-06 – The Sherman Animal Shelter is holding their annual adopt-a-thon this weekend. The shelter is maintaining extended hours for 10th annual event. Dogs can be adopted for $44 each and cat adoption fees cost $33. The costs cover a vet exam, rabies shot, and spaying or neutering.

Forty three cats and dogs were adopted during last year’s adopt-a-thon. Organizers hope to meet that goal. Nearly thirty cats and more than sixty dogs are in need of good homes this weekend. The shelter says they can not afford to keep all of the animals. After seven days, dogs are euthanized.

The adopt-a-thon will be held from 9-6 Saturday and Sunday at the Sherman Animal Shelter. It is located on 1800 East Ida Road.

Adopt-a-pet vehicle is also parked every weekend at the Sherman Town Center.
