PAWS marking National Adoption Week in Mayfield Heights
The Public Animal Welfare Society of Ohio will celebrate National Adoption Week Sept. 10 and 11 at PetSmart in Mayfield Heights’ Golden Gate Plaza.
Tents will be set up outside for adopting both cats/kittens and dogs/puppies from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday. Other rescue organizations also will be there.
Screeners will be available for approving adoptions all day, so those interested can take their new pet home with them that same day. PAWS said adoption prices will be heavily reduced -- cats will be free -- to make room in their foster homes for all the strays that will soon be in the cold.
