Events: Pet adoption marathon

On Saturday, Aug. 18, 4 p.m.-midnight, McKamey Animal Center will open an offsite adoption center at St. Martin of Tours Episcopal Church, 7547 E. Brainerd Road. An estimated 100 pets will be available for adoption.

As an incentive to adopt shelter animals, McKamey will be waiving all adoption fees with the purchase of a $25 new pet starter kit. All McKamey animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated according to their age and given parasite prevention. Cats are leukemia-tested and dogs are heartworm-tested.
