Animal lovers should head to Evans Chevrolet this weekend.
Together with Wanderers' Rest Humane Association, the Baldwinsville auto dealership will host an adopt-a-thon from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday March 26. Participants can visit with both dogs and cats from the shelter while checking out what the facility has to offer.
Owner Mark Evans initiated the event, which is the second held at the dealership. He will also donate $200 to Wanderers' Rest for every vehicle purchased (with a coupon) the day of the event.
"These events bring our facility to light," said Denise Adams, the animal care manager at Wanderers' Rest. "We have had a number of animals find their forever families from being brought to these events. That is by far the most rewarding thing in this business."
While volunteers will focus on getting "feline friends" adopted during the event, there will also be dogs available for adoption.
While participants will not be able to take pets home directly from the event, they can fill out an adoption application for a particular animal and WRHA will hold the animal while the application is processed.
Evans Chevrolet is located at 112 Syracuse St. in Baldwinsville.
Wanderers' Rest Humane Association is an open admission shelter dedicated to providing the highest quality care and compassion for the animals entrusted to it while leading the community in creating a more humane society. The facility is located at 7138 Sutherland Drive, Canastota, NY 13032. For more information or to obtain a coupon, call 697-2796.
