2nd Annual Statewide Shelter Open House Event
October 5, 2013
This unique event spotlights animal shelters across Washington State and the homeless animals in their care.
Take a field trip to your own community animal shelter on Saturday, October 5, 2013 during Pawsitive Alliance’s 2nd annual Statewide Shelter Open House Event!
This event, organized by Pawsitive Alliance, highlights the work that Washington animal shelters are doing on behalf of animals in need. Pawsitive Alliance works with animal shelters across the state in order to promote and help them grow their adopter, donor, and volunteer bases—and to raise awareness of the good work that they do on a daily basis for animals in need!
When: Saturday, October 5, 2013 (hours vary, check with participating shelters)
Where: Animal shelters across Washington
What: Sixteen local shelters will be opening up their doors to host an Open House and bring community members in as honored guests—and the animals will cheer as they are adopted out to their forever homes.
Get involved and help save lives! Contact Pawsitive Alliance at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 206-486-4738 to find out how YOU can help out for Shelter Open House in your communities!
