PetSmart Hosts Pet Adoption Tent Event

Fayetteville—On Saturday Nov. 14, 2015, eight dogs became members of a new family. Tilted Acres Rescue and Adoptions (T.A.R.A), Inc. hosted pet adoption tent in the parking of Pet’s Mart on Ramsey Street. The event began at 10 a.m. and ended at 4 p.m. Another event was held on Sunday, Nov. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

With the weather not too hot and not too cold, many people attended the event, petting the animals, and some adopting them.

“I love the pet adoption events. The only thing is, it’s sad because there are those that get adopted and then those that are left behind at the end of the day. That is the hardest part about going to pet adoptions”, local woman Dorothy Crosby said. If I could take them all, I would, she said.

Tilted Acres Rescue and Adoptions is a non-profit an no-kill organization whose main goal is finding loving homes for homeless animals.

“Any event that helps us get pets into loving homes is a great success”, T.A.R.A Vice President, Becky Sasala said.

T.A.R.A is partnered with PetSmart and they plan to continue hosting the pet adoption events in the future.

“Every four months we sponsor these tent events. Different adoption agencies come together so that we can raise awareness of homeless pets and try to help people find their new best friend”, Sasala said.

The adoption fee of $100 (for any animal) includes spay or neuter, microchip, rabies vaccination, all other age appropriate vaccinations, and 30 days of free pet health insurance.
