This upcoming Saturday, March 20th, the annual Bark in the Park festival will take place at Keisel Park, in Auburn! It is organized by the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Auburn, and we would love to see you there!
This free event, which we, the Lee County Humane Society, are co-hosting, will take place from 9 am to 2 pm, and will have a variety of booths, local pet vendors, as well as adoptable dogs!
The Lee County Humane Society will be bringing along some adoptable, furry friends! We will be able to do adoptions at this event, so if you’ve been searching for a new best friend to add to your family, this is a great way to meet some contestants.
Adoption is both a great way to find a new furry best friend, as well as a lifesaving choice. Every adoption saves two lives: the adopted animal is given a bright future in a happy home, while a spot in the shelter is opened up for a new homeless companion animal.
PetVet Animal Health Center will be providing free dog microchipping! Microchipping is a perfect way to help your dog be reunited with your family should they ever get lost.
A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, and inserted between the dog’s shoulder blades. Although it is not a GPS device, once it is registered, it will have all the owner’s information stored. This means that if the dog is brought to a vet clinic or animal shelter, it can be scanned and the owners can be contacted!
