A compassionate California Re/max realtor has joined forces with Sacramento’s Front Street Animal Shelter to make their “Home for the Pawlidays” adoption event extraordinarily bright.
The Sacramento Bee reported that Kim Pacini-Hauch made the announcement on her Facebook page this week. Due to her overwhelming generosity, all adoption fees will be covered for every animal at that shelter through December 31.
That means the $85 fee to adopt a dog and the $65 cat fees will be waived for adopters. The announcement spread through the community like wildfire, and has been picked up in national publications like People magazine.
The realtor adopted her terrier, Teddy, from this shelter in 1984, and, though he has passed on, the love Teddy instilled in her has spread to encompass an untold number of animals.
On Saturday, the shelter reported that since the promotion began they had
lines out the door and 223 ADOPTIONS! Many of the animals currently in foster for that shelter are now able to be brought in to find their furever homes. However, as amazing as those numbers are, the runs will fill up again quickly; dogs like Daisy, featured above, have been without a furever home for a while.
A spokesperson said,
the shelter takes in about 11,000 animals each year. Volunteers will counsel potential adopters on the responsibility and cost of owning a pet, and try to match each human with the right animal.
Before they go to their new homes, each animal is s/n, licensed, chipped and vetted for common diseases. Front Street Animal Shelter, at 2127 Front Street, is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Their number is (916) 808-7387. They will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday. For more information on animals available for adoption, see the frontstreetshelter.org or their Facebook page!
