HELP the Animals will have pet adoption, bake sale this weekend

HELP the Animals is having a special pet adoption event and bake sale in honor of Valentine’s Day.

The organization is billing the event as the opportunity to “find your perfect match.”

The event will be noon to 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday at the shelter, 2101 W. Main St. in Richmond.

The dog adoption fee is $82 and the cat adoption fee is $22.

There also will be baked goods sold by Richmond High School students, T-shirt sales and Valentine’s Day treats for pets.

Many area businesses are supporting the HELP shelter with its Paws of Love program in February by selling pink paw icons for $1. All proceeds will benefit the no-kill donor supported shelter, which has been experiencing some financial challenges.

For more information about the event, pet adoptions and the Paws of Love program, call (765) 962-6811, or visit the shelter’s web pages on Facebook or at
