Pets will be coming from the Bella Foundation, Oklahoma City Animal Welfare, Pet Angels Animal Rescue, Second Chance Animal Sanctuary, Because of You Chihuahua Rescue, Best Friends of Pets, Red Dirt Boxer Rescue, Safe Haven Animal Rescue and Edmond Animal Welfare.
“I have always believed animal rescue takes a team and not just one person or group. Saving the lives of animals is a community effort and this is a community event,” says Bella Foundation President, Eric McCune. “Bringing a new pet into your family is one of the best experiences people can have and we are making it easy to find the right pet for every lifestyle. By working with multiple reputable organizations we give people a wide variety to choose from so that perfect match can be made and lives can be saved.”
The “Home for the Holidays” event will be held from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. each day at PetSmart, located at NW 63rd and May Ave.
Adoption fees range from $50 to $250 per pet.
All animals are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and some are micro-chipped.
