NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - If you're in the market to adopt a pet, UPAWS may have just the event for you.
This upcoming Wednesday the 13th, the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter will be having its Share the Love adoption event at Fox Marquette Subaru. From 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., all pet adoption fees will be covered thanks to a grant from the ASPCA and Subaru. UPAWS will be bringing as many animals as possible to the dealership for people to adopt the next member of their family.
"Subaru and the ASPCA were very generous to award us that grant and we have been partners with Fox Marquette for many, many years - 9 to 10 years - we have many adoption events at Fox Marquette and Fox Negaunee, so we're all a big part of the family," says Ann Brownell, Community Outreach Coordinator of UPAWS.
UPAWS currently has a number of cats, rabbits, and five dogs all up for adoption. More than 10 new kittens will also become available that day.
If you want an animal that was not brought to the dealership, you can get a coupon and come to the shelter during that time and adopt an animal there or one that is currently being fostered.
