PET PANTRIES' OXFORD DAY EVENT TO RAISE MONEY FOR HUNGRY PETS

Pet Pantries, a not-for-profit corporation based in Easton, will hold a series of raffles at their booth at this year's Oxford Day celebration to further their mission of providing pet food to three area shelters and to individual pet owners. 

This year's Oxford Day, an all-day family celebration held in the historic Eastern Shore town, will take place on Saturday, April 28th, rain or shine. The Pet Pantries' booth will feature several raffle items including two beautiful planters filled with dwarf English Boxwood and annuals, original framed photographs, and an original painting by well-known folk artist Danny Doughty. (Note that all of these items would make perfect gits for Mother's Day -- support a good cause and wrap up your Mother's Day shopping!) Participants in the raffle will choose the items they want by putting their tickets in the doggie bowl in front of the item; winners will be announced at 1 PM -- so get there early!

No Adoption Fee for Cats Over Age Three

“FREE OVER THREE”

CHESAPEAKE CATS AND DOGS WAIVES ADOPTION FEES DURING

ADOPT-A-SHELTER-CAT MONTH FOR CATS OVER THREE YEARS OF AGE

To celebrate Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat Month this June, Chesapeake Cats and Dogs (“CCAD”), in collaboration with the American Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (“ASPCA”) and the makers of Fresh Step® litter (“Fresh Step”), is participating in a fee-waived adoption program to help find loving homes for adult cats.  

 It’s kitten season, but we’re putting the spotlight on the often-overlooked adult cats.  ASPCA research recently published in the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science found that waiving fees for adult cats boosts adoptions without diminishing the value adopters place on their cats.

Often times, adoption fees don’t even offset the costs of spay/neuter/microchipping/food/housing. By offering fee-waived adoptions for adult cats, we can increase adoptions, thus creating space to take in more homeless animals.   More animals can be saved and new cat owners have extra money to spend on their cat.  And, ultimately, the adopted cat has a loving home.  It’s a win-win for all.

The free adoptions will run for the whole month of June for cats three years and older.  All other adoption policies and procedures will remain in effect.  Look for CCAD at Annapolis Whole Foods on 6/4, Art in the Park (Stevensville) on 6/18 and the Book/Bake Sale/Adoptathon at Kent Island Safeway on 6/25.

To see pictures of eligible older cats, visit the CCAD Facebook page or www.ccadcatanddogrescue.org.  For more information, contact CCAD 410-643-9955.
