The first-ever PetGazette Valentine's Adoption Fair will be from 12-4pm on Saturday, February 15th at the Four Points Sheraton at 22 Woodfin Street in downtown Asheville. The admission fee of at least $1 will go to participating area rescue groups.
The Asheville Humane Society, Brother Wolf, and Charlie's Angels rescue groups, and others, will be there with dogs and puppies ready to find their forever home. Sheryl Mann, of Flying Dogs Photography, will take a free photo of newly adopted pets with their adopting family.
In addition to Mann's photo booth and the rescue groups, there will be vendor booths from local pet businesses offering everything from legal services to dog training services to pet toys and natural/holistic pet food. Free coffee or hot chocolate will be there for the taking, and attendees will get "goody bags" with coupons and gifts from PetGazette advertisers. There will also be a chance to win prizes in return for a rescue donation in PetGazette's "Spin to Win" game. And Beemer the rescued Pit Bull will be at her Kissing Booth to generate donations to the Beemer Fund, which supports pet rescue and spay/neuter efforts.
On-site radio interviews will be recorded for use on Pet Talk from PetGazette, which runs on Fridays at 2:30pm. The show airs on WZGM 1350, Asheville Community Radio, a co-sponsor of the Valentine's Adoption Fair. For more information call PetGazette at 828 633-0629.
