LACONIA — The New Hampshire Humane Society will again be hosting its Black Friday Adopt A Thon at the old Blockbuster store in the Belknap Mall, Belmont, on Friday, Nov. 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Instead of driving over to the shelter on Meredith Center Road, bring your family to the Belknap Mall, and select a new canine four legged friend from a wonderful selection of pets, some of which have travelled thousands of miles for a second chance.
Fees are $325 for an adult dog, $375 for a puppy, and $125 for senior dogs over the age of 10 years. All dogs and puppies will be adopted with current vaccines - distemper, kennel cough, rabies, anti-parasitic care for external and internal parasites, heartworm tested, and some basic training in conjunction with their behavioral assessment along with all dogs are already spayed or neutered.
To aid in the process of adoption the following paperwork should be in hand:
1) Proof of homeownership or rental/lease agreement stating pets are allowed.
2) Current pet vaccination history showing up to date rabies certification.
3) Human hearts brimming with love and a solid commitment to pet ownership.
4) Adopters must be over 21.
Those browsing for pets will be able to have a free cup of coffee, visit the Meredith Place Veterinary Emergency Hospital booth and lend a note of support to the tribute booth in honor of Pagie Garneau, a local teen who adored all animals but died tragically in a car accident. The Garneau family has been busy raising memorial funds, a portion of which will underwrite select adoptions that day. The Garneaus will also host a raffle table, proceeds of which will be gifted to New Hampshire Humane Society.
Paige Quigley, Mall Manager said "while the actual venue for the Adopt A Thon is one store front over from the animal shelter's usual spot, we are thrilled and honored to allow them the opportunity to launch a one-day adopt-a-thon at the Mall."
"Black Friday Adopt a Thon, now a huge adoption event for area pet lovers, keeps gaining momentum," said Humane Society Executive Director Marylee Gorham. "While we decided to focus our efforts solely on dogs for this day, we shall switch our focus to felines back at the shelter on Saturday. This event is a great way for us to connect homeless pets and the families that want them."
