I don't usually post the aahs news, but they are trying to adopt 60 animals over the course of the weekend.

Greetings!

This weekend is a very important weekend at AAHS - and it's a weekend that could truly make a lifesaving difference for many of the animals in our care. Please read on to learn more about our urgent situation.

The shelter, adoption center and foster homes are bursting at the seams because adoptions are down and intake has remained steady. With more than sixty adoptable animals in our care, it is urgent that these cats and kittens find homes, and quickly!
We at AAHS are holding a special adoption event on Saturday, May 31 to find homes for as many animals as possible. In addition to our Adoption Center, the Beaverdam Road shelter will be open from 10am to 4pm especially to feature foster animals and other adoptable pets.
So far this year we have been able to save every healthy, adoptable pet. Please don't let that victory come to an end - spread the word about adopting a homeless cat or kitten today! We need a successful adoption weekend - we would hate to be forced to make space for incoming animals.
If you have been considering adding a feline to your family, there is no better time. If you haven't considered it, what better reason could you have than the knowledge that you'll be saving a precious life, and enriching your own? Adopt two cats or kittens and get a discount on the second adoption fee.
You can make a lifesaving difference for a homeless pet. This weekend, please stop by the Adoption Outreach Center (Pet Supplies Plus, 12-6 Saturday and Sunday) or the main shelter (399 Beaverdam Road, 10-4 Saturday). The animals are counting on you!

Save more lives - forward this message to everyone you know!

For the Animals,

Rachel Michaud
Assistant Director
Athens Area Humane Society


P.S. Although adoptive homes are most urgently needed, don't let the inability to adopt right now stop you from making a difference. Forward this message and help be a matchmaker, make a donation, sponsor a pet, or e-mail us to become a foster parent.
