Scott County Humane Society is one of 54 animal rescue organizations in the country, and the only group in Kentucky to receive grant funding to partner with and participate in the inaugural ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon national pet adoption event.
The humane society will host its Love and Life Adopt-a-thon at Garth Elementary School in Georgetown at South Broadway and Jackson Street.
The event will be 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday. On Friday, the humane society will host a Happy Tail Parade at 6 p.m. on Main Street to kick off the adoption weekend.
Prior to adoption, pets are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested, and receive other veterinary care.
The adopt-a-thon event will also host dog trainers, search and rescue demonstrations, veterinary clinics and pet-related businesses. Each adopted pet will receive a free collar and tag, and adopters will be entered into a raffle for gifts for their new pets.
