PET ADOPTION FEES WAIVED DURING WOODFORD HUMANE SOCIETY HOLIDAY ADOPTION DRIVE Quantrell Subaru sponsors every adoption through the end of the year
It’s a holiday gift that could empty the shelter: Quantrell Subaru is once again spreading holiday cheer by sponsoring adoptions at the Woodford Humane Society, December 18-31. With approved adoption applications, families will be able to take home any of Woodford Humane’s cats, dogs, puppies, kittens, rabbits, or guinea pigs for free. Adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, a starter bag of food, and a free vet visit.
2017 marks the fifth year that Quantrell Subaru has sponsored adoptions around the holidays, each year turning the Woodford Humane Society’s Adoption Center into a whirlwind of activity. 2016 was an unprecedented year with 130 animals adopted during the two-week drive.
Katie Hoffman, Woodford Humane’s Executive Director, says, “The Adoption Drive with Quantrell Subaru has always been very busy, but last year blew us away. We are hoping to be just as busy this year! It’s exciting for us to see these pets go to great homes, and we are so grateful to Quantrell Subaru for making the holidays so special for the animals and their new families again this year.”
According to Woodford Humane Society Marketing Director Beth Oleson, Quantrell Subaru’s gift of sponsored adoptions has a deeper impact than simply sending pets home: “Every adoption we do during this Adoption Drive helps two pets: the pet who got adopted, and the pet that will come through our doors a day, or a week, or a month later needing help. These busy adoption weeks go a long way in making sure we have space and resources are available to care for all of the new arrivals coming our way in the new year.”
She adds, “If we could close up shop on December 31st with an empty Adoption Center, that would be a dream come true.”
The Woodford Humane Society, a nonprofit animal welfare agency in Versailles, is currently home to more than a hundred happy, healthy, and friendly cats, dogs, and rabbits in need of homes. The adoption center is open Tuesday-Sunday at noon; although it is normally closed on Mondays, Woodford Humane will be open for adoptions on Monday, December 18th to kick off the Adoption Drive. Adoptable pets and holiday hours can be viewed at woodfordhumane.org.
The Woodford Humane Society is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that does not receive any government funding. Donation drives like this one make it possible for the organization to care for the approximately 1,000 pets each year. Woodford Humane’s annual placement rate is 95% or above – almost three times the national average.
