Sugar Land Animal Services is having another record breaking year with 439 pet adoptions as of Aug. 29.
“Adoptions are up 13 percent over last year and 43 percent above 2009,” said Animal Services Manager Kathryn Ketchum.
Ketchum attributes the increase to dedicated staff and volunteers and the community’s amazing support.
The City hosted several off-site adoption events this year, including the Bark in the Park at Constellation Field in June and Adopt-a-thon events at Petsmart.
“Each event helps us spread the word that we are here and have great animals for adoption,” explained Ketchum. “If you can’t come and visit us at the shelter, we hope you will check us out at one of our upcoming off-site events.”
Sugar Land Animal Services will participate in the Petsmart Adopt- a- thon Weekend at the First Colony location Sept. 14-16; and 2nd Annual Mega adoption event, Hunting for Homes, on Nov. 3.
