The Suwannee Valley Humane Society will be hosting their annual Spring Fling, Saturday, May 10 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. This year the humane society will also be celebrating their 30th anniversary and are asking everyone to come out for a day of fun and food to help them celebrate.
At the Spring Fling, you can visit the shelter and meet all the residents and might even find a special friend to adopt and take home. Typically, the adult cats and larger dogs are overlooked when people are browsing for a new furry friend, so as an incentive, large dogs and adult cats over one year old (only) will not have an adoption fee for the day, meaning you can give a loving cat or dog a good home for free.
Something you might not expect to do when visiting an animal shelter is shopping and eating. The humane society has three thrift stores on the property where you can browse and purchase items for your home, clothing for yourself or new plants for your patio. Hot dogs, chips and drinks will be provided free of charge, but you’ll want to bring your wallet for the reasonably-priced baked goods for the shelter’s bake sell.
If you have considered donating items to the shelter, bring them along, as they can always use dry dog/cat food, non-clumping cat litter, bleach, old towels, dog/cat food and new or used leashes, collars and carriers. If you recycle, the shelter also uses newspapers and recycles aluminum cans for added shelter income that directly benefits the animals.
The Suwannee Valley Humane Society is located at 1156 SE
Bisbee Loop in Madison. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
