Pet Adopt-a-thon, Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012
Seattle Animal Shelter and Seattle Humane Society showcase adoptable cats and dogs at Interbay Urban Center
SEATTLE - Interbay Urban Center (IUC) is proud to partner with the Seattle Animal Shelter and the Seattle Humane Society to repeat a community favorite event, the "Pet Adopt-a-thon!" The goal of this event is to find loving, permanent homes for foster animals. The adoptathon will be held on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2012, at the Interbay Urban Center located at 1827 15th Ave. W. near the Whole Foods. The event will take place in the space between Peet's Coffee and Tea and Whole Foods and will run from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. Numerous cats and dogs from both the Seattle Animal Shelter and the Seattle Humane Society's Max Mobile will be available for adoption.
Community focused, the Interbay Urban Center's goal is to host different events that the surrounding neighborhoods can enjoy. "We want to be known as a place where the community can get together and have a good time, which is why events like the adoptathon are so fun and important," says Elizabeth Peck, Community Marketing Manager for the IUC.
These three organizations wish to continue to spread the word about the joys and value of adopting shelter pets and saving lives. So, if you have ever considered owning a pet or want to make room for another furry friend and companion, this is a wonderful opportunity to come out to the IUC and see these wonderful pets that are available for adoption.
