SANDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) - Adopting a new furry friend in Marquette County just got a little bit easier.

The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter (UPAWS) in Sands Township reopened its doors to the public on June 1st.

Visitors are welcome every day from noon to 4:00 p.m. An appointment is no longer needed, but everyone who enters is required to wear a mask.

And because June is ‘National Adopt a Shelter Cat’ month, UPAWS has a promotion offering deals adoption prices.

“It is called Spin the Wheel and I have a wheel that you can spin and you can get 10, 20, 15, up to 25% off your adoption or free prizes,” says UPAWS Community Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator Ann Brownell. “It’s kind of an incentive to come in and adopt.”

The shelter is starting to bring some volunteers back and making updates to new volunteer onboarding.
