This weekend: Geauga County Dog Shelter Adopt-a-Thon

The Geauga County Dog Shelter's 2009 Adopt-a-Thon will take place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday at the shelter, 12513 Merritt Road, off Route 44, just south of the Geauga County Safety Center.

The event will feature refreshments, a yard sale, doggy boutique, bake sale for humans and dogs, a silent auction and a raffle.

Dog washes will be available for $10, nail trims for $5, and on Sunday microchipping for $25. Raffle tickets are available at the shelter or through volunteers.

Funds raised will go toward medical expenses and training for the more than 700 dogs which come into the shelter each year.

Since 2003, the Geauga County Dog Shelter has reunited or found adoptive homes for 97 percent of the dogs coming through the door. For more information call the shelter at 440-286-8135.
