May is 31 Days of Compassion at Animal Friends!

May 09, 2016 11:47AM ● By North Hills Monthly Magazine

At Animal Friends, every day is full of compassion. Through progressive pet-focused programming, Animal Friends is changing and improving the lives of the people and pets in our region.

So for the 31 days of May, join Animal Friends. Even one day of compassion can mean a life saved, an ailing body healed and a pet rescued. It’s all about working together with compassion and hope. 

And, right now your gift will go further! An anonymous donor has presented a challenge and will match every donation 50 cents on the dollar, up to $40,000 during the month of May.

There are so many ways to join Animal Friends this month… Adopt. Learn. Care. Give. All month long, we will be hosting events to help you get involved with Animal Friends’ life-saving mission:

  • Lawrenceville Cat Crawl – Sat., May 7

Purchase a shopping pass to receive all day specials at participating businesses as you “cat crawl” through Lawrenceville, visiting our adoptable cats and kittens along the way! 

  • Burgatory Puppy Chow Shakes –Thur., May 5-Sun., May 8
    We’ve teamed up with Burgatory to help delicious Puppy Chow Shakes benefit the pups at our shelter! Stop by participating locations all weekend and $1 from each shake sold will be donated to Animal Friends.
  • Surprise! Pop-Up Event in Market Square – Fri., May 20
    Puppies and kittens and bunnies, oh my! We don’t want to spoil the surprise so you’ll just have to stop by Market Square on your lunch break to see what all the cuteness is about!
  • $31 Adoption Special – All month long!
    The most important thing to all of the animals at our shelter is finding a loving home. That’s why during the month of May, the requested donation for each adoption will be discounted to just $31! Visit our website to print your coupon and come find the perfect furry friend for you!
