James, the store manager said he likes seeing animals from local shelters going to forever homes after meeting families at the event.
Representatives from several businesses and organizations, including Pet Supplies Plus, set up tables inside the store and handed out samples, magnets and brochures. While outside, the truck from Northshore Animal League displayed several dogs and cats from local shelters that are available for adoption. (Two dogs were adopted today)
The EARS Rescue 2 Animal Ambulance was available for tours and also was accepting badly needed donations to cover its operating costs.
Shirley Nowinski, an EARS member and mother of founder Jon Nowinski said the ambulance has been extremely busy, but because it is a 100% volunteer organization that offers its ambulance services free of charge, donations are needed to keep it going strong.
