The Sound Beach Civic Association will host the First Annual Pet Adopt-A-Thon on September 22, 2012, from 11 AM to 3 PM, in the Hartlin Inn parking lot, New York Avenue, Sound Beach (rain date Sept. 23). By matching up pets and people, we hope the event will allow shelters and other organizations to free up some space to take in more pets in need.
Adoptable pets will be there from the Brookhaven Town shelter as well as LI Greyhound Rescue, Last Chance Animal Rescue, NY Bully Crew, and Sav A Pet. Information about responsible pet ownership will also be provided by Regina Quinn Legacy Fund, STAR Foundation, and Volunteers for Animal Welfare.
Petco will be there giving away some fun pet products and Reality Carpet will show how to build scratching post. Ann Nystrom Cottone of Art-by-Ann will be giving out discount coupons for any portrait of person or pet rendered from personal photos. Our own MarciaGrace Tropin has prepared some fun activities for your kids. There will be face painting and kids will be able to draw and then adopt a pet rock. Connie Rae will be singing for several hours and our own Phil Regan is getting a lot of great music together.
Be prepared to win some great prizes at the Chinese auction. Proceeds from this will be divided among the participating rescue groups to help with the great work they do.
Please join us. Meet adoptable pets, learn about responsible pet care, and support our local rescue groups.
