Sponsor a Pet and Receive Free Entry into the Celebration of Lights

Posted on December 20, 2017 at 8:43 AM by Communications Department

This holiday season, help give an animal a “Home for the Holidays.” Now through Christmas, the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter is giving away a free pass to the Celebration of Lights to anyone who sponsors a pet’s adoption fees. Adoption fees range from $5 to $100 and donors can pay the full adoption fee or a portion of the adoption fee. Sponsors can visit the shelter until December 24th and choose the pet they would like to sponsor or they can pay the fees and let the shelter choose the pet. The pass for the Celebration of Lights in Newport News Park is valid until January 1, 2018. A list of pets available for adoption is posted on the shelter’s websitepras adoption2

There are a few other ways to help the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter this holiday season. The shelter has a wish list of commonly used items for pets who are waiting to go to their forever homes. Donations such as canned cat or dog food, dog and cat beds, dog and cat toys, dog bones and treats, pipe cleaners, bleach, newspapers, and more are welcomed. The shelter also needs volunteers who would like to foster pets until they are found a forever home. Foster volunteers bring pets into their homes and care for them until they are placed permanently. To learn more about fostering a pet or donating to the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter visit the shelter or contact them at (757) 933-8982.
