October 22, 2009 (El Cajon) – Here’s the purr-fect event to bring your pet—or find a pet if you don’t already own one. The Third Annual Animal Shelter Open House this Sunday, October 25th from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The shelter is located at 1275 North Marshall Avenue in El Cajon and admission is free. Games, food, prizes, clowns and a miniature horse are among the attractions—along with an animal Halloween costume contest at 1 p.m.
Micro chipping and rabies vaccines will be available for $15 and $6. Licensing will be offered and late fees will be waived during this event. You can also adopt a dog or cat. In addition, guests will have the opportunity to tour the shelter, watch a Police K-9 demonstration, and view a dog obedience demonstration. SNAP, the spay and neuter scooter bus, will also be there.
Bring a new or gently used clean blanket or bath rug to donate to the shelter, and receive a free hot dog. The El Cajon Kiwanis club will be selling hot dogs, sodas, and water.
This event is hosted by the El Cajon Animal Center for Education and Services Foundation (ACES). El Cajon ACES Foundation is a private non-profit 501(c)(3) community organization, whose mission is to support the El Cajon Animal Shelter by raising money to enhance medical care, encourage animal adoptions, and promote public education about the proper care of animals.
