On Saturday, December 10, State Representative Andrew Chesney will be hosting a Pet Rescue Fair with Friends Forever Humane Society to introduce adoptable dogs and cats to area residents.
The goal of the Pet Rescue Fair is to promote pet adoption and the humane treatment of animals, something the Chesney strongly supports. In his time in the General Assembly, Rep. Chesney has fought for animal rights and advocated for legislative initiatives encouraging the humane treatment of animals.
“Each year millions of dogs and cats are euthanized,” said Chesney. “When you adopt a pet from a rescue or shelter you reduce the marketplace for unscrupulous breeders and more important you are saving the life of an animal.”
The Pet Rescue Fair will be hosted from Noon to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 10 at the Friends Forever Humane Society at 966 West Rudy Road in Freeport.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet adoptable pets and take advantage of half-priced cat adoptions. Donations of pet food and supplies will also be accepted. Additionally, information about state programs will be available at the event.
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 more than 10,000 animals in need.
