Petfinder.com will be celebrating their 15th birthday from July 15-17 during their Big Birthday Adoption Weekend. In conjunction with that, they are aiming for 15,000 adoptions over the course of that weekend.
Over the past 15 years, Petfinder.com has worked with rescues and shelters to adopt more than 17 million pets into loving homes. If you visit the Birthday page for Petfinder, you can find local shelters and rescues that are participating in the event, see adoptable pets, and sign a birthday card with a photo of your pet. Visit their birthday page HERE.
Black and Orange will be doing our best to help Petfinder.com reach their goal of 15,000 adoptions. So please take a look at our adoptable kitties and plan to take one home over that weekend: www.bandocats.petfinder.com
Rhatima, or Queen Rainey as we have nicknamed her, is our featured cat for the Birthday celebration. We would LOVE to find her forever home during this celebration. To see photos of Rhatima and read her story, visit her on Petfinder.com or our blog.
We will be holding our 5th Annual Garage sale over that weekend, too, from Thursday, July 14 to Sunday, July 17. Our garage sale always coincides with the Miami Valley Steam Threshers Association Show at Pastime Park in Plain City. This is the 62nd year for the Steam Show and they will be featuring the Cockshut/Co-op Tractors. To see a full schedule of Steam Show events, go HERE.
As most of you know, our board member, Carol Gaul, lives in a house at 176 Anderson Avenue, which abuts Pastime Park and makes it a perfect place to hold the garage sale. Carol and her husband, Chuck, lost their home and their kitties last August to a house fire. But they have emerged from the ashes, rebuilt, found new kitties to love, and are planning on having the sale again this year.
We are still collecting donations for the sale. If you have anything you would like to donate, please call Carol at 614-419-1553.
The garage sale will begin each day at 9 am (maybe earlier if Carol has her coffee) and will last until the final buyer leaves for the day. We always have a wide mixture of things and new stuff arrives daily. So come, shop early, and shop often.
We have a lot to celebrate, so please join us!
