PAWS: Come help us 'Pack that pick-up'
If you haven’t already marked your calendar for a day of fun on Saturday, Oct. 27, there’s still time. Join us at the Boathouse at Steamboat Landing Park in Belfast for “Animal Jeopardy,” a special adoption event, and stay for “Sylvia,” definitely one of the funniest shaggy-dog stories ever, at 3 p.m. or 8 p.m. Can’t make it Saturday? Catch “Sylvia" at 8 p.m. on Friday.
Saturday is also the day we need your help to PACK THAT PICK-UP! Loyal Biscuit Co. is partnering with Dutch Chevrolet Buick to collect supplies for the PAWS Animal Adoption Center! The truck will be at the Boathouse in Belfast on Saturday and our goal is to pack it full of supplies the shelter needs.
For every item you donate you’ll receive a raffle ticket for your chance to win a year of free dog washes at any Loyal Biscuit Co. location. If you’re not able to make the event, drop off your donation to any of the three locations and we’ll get them to the pickup for you! This is one event you won’t want to miss.
At the adoption event on Saturday you’ll have a chance to meet some of our charismatic cats and delightful dogs. They may include Munk, a sweet, laid-back and very affectionate male cat who we can’t believe is still at the shelter. This beautiful big boy definitely needs a home.
Not looking for a cat? Then today’s your lucky day! We have a couple of dogs who’d love to have a new home. Meet Codey, a very active 8-year-old who’d love to be able to spend his days on the go. Don’t underestimate this little guy — he loves to go on walks and chase the ball. He wouldn’t mind sharing his home with a cat, and of course he wouldn’t mind a big fluffy bed to sleep on.
If you’re not thinking about adopting right now but would like to help the animals at the shelter, just stop in. You can walk a dog, brush a cat or just hang out with our four-legged friends. And you can drop off needed items such as non-clumping cat litter, canned dog and cat food, and dog and cat toys. And yes, of course you can bring cat and dog treats — our guys will think you hung the moon! We’re open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and we’re pretty sure the friend you’re looking for is here.
