Dog and cat lovers alike will get a chance to adopt a squeaky clean furry friend at the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society’s adoption drive today and Saturday at Bubbles and Bows Pet Salon.
Linda Kennon, humane society board member, said approximately 25 dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes will be bathed and some groomed at the salon. The adoption fee is $45 for dogs and $35 for cats.
“We’re going to have lots of cuddly puppies and kittens out there,” Kennon said. “They’re all very sweet and very cute.”
Kennon said a lot of people adopt a pet as a gift for someone around the holidays.
“They make a wonderful Christmas gift, but people need to make sure they think carefully about it,” she said. “It’s a lifetime commitment.”
Patsy Towles, owner of the salon, said she hopes the adoption drive helps alleviate overcrowding at the shelter that happens during cold weather.
