The Christmas holidays are a time of giving…giving and sharing of love and friendship. This holiday season, consider giving the gift of a furever home. Two local pet loving organizations, Saunders Second Chances and Highlands County Sheriff’s Office Animal Services, are teaming up again this year to present Merry PAWSmas on Saturday, December 1, 2018, from 9 a.m. through 1 p.m. located on 7300 Haywood Taylor Blvd., Sebring. These organizations will be kicking off the holiday season with an adoption day for furry friends of all shapes, sizes, colors and ages.
Saunders Second Chances partnered with HCSO Animal Services, with a mission to enrich the lives of our furry little friends within our community and to assist Highlands County Animal Services fulfill its goal for pet adoptions to a Forever Loving Home by fostering four legged kids. This program is focused on raising funds while simultaneously raising awareness about adoptions and volunteering at Highlands County Animal Services. Through fostering and healing homeless animals, providing the highest quality of care while reducing costs on spays and neuters for those truly in need, Saunders Second Chances has become a vital link in the animal service community.
This Saturday, December 1, some of the adoption fees will be waived as a celebration with the new family as they give the gift of a furever home.
