Chesney to host Pet Rescue Fair with Friends Forever Humane Society

Just in time for the holiday season, State Representative Andrew Chesney will be hosting a Pet Rescue Fair with Friends Forever Humane Society.  The event will allow area residents to meet adoptable pets, learn about state programs, and even take advantage of half-priced cat adoptions.

“There is always a need for responsible pet-owners to share their love and homes with furry friends seeking their forever homes,” said Rep. Chesney, himself an owner of rescue Labrador.  “We hope that this will help begin the process of placing available rescue pets with loving owners in time for the Holiday Season.”

The Pet Rescue Fair will be hosted from Noon to 3:00pm on Saturday, December 11 at Friends Forever Humane Society at 966 West Rudy Road in Freeport.  Attendees may take the event as an opportunity to meet adoptable pets, donate pet food or supplies to help feed pets in need at Friends Forever, learn about state programs and meet Representative Chesney and the staff at the Humane Society.

Friends Forever Humane Society is a non-profit organization focused on the welfare of companion animals. The shelter does not receive funding from city, county or state taxes. Founded in 1953, and thanks to generous donors and volunteers, Friends Forever Humane Society has helped over 10,000 animals in need.
