State-Wide Pet Adoption Event Happening This Weekend

YAKIMA, WA-- This weekend is the second annual statewide Animal Shelter Open House event put on by Pawsitive Alliance.

Pawsitive Alliance is working with 16 animal shelters across the state for this event to promote and help them grow their adopter, donor, and volunteer bases.

Organizers said last year shelters saw a 25% increase in adoptions during this event.

The Humane Society said these events are great because they offer discounts to people looking for a pet.

"We'll be offering adoption discounts on all our dogs and puppies...they will go for 75-dollars, and all our cats and kittens will be 25-dollars," said Erica Seaver-Engel of the Yakima Humane Society.

If you want to adopt an animal you can go to the Yakima Humane Society between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

In Benton and Franklin counties you can go to the Benton County Animal Control and Outreach Center between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday
