DAWG pity party


Douglas Animal Welfare Group is having a Pity Party. This shelter adoption event is to promote dogs that are passed by because they are pits, old, deaf, blind, or even the wrong color. Yes, believe it or not, statistics show that black dogs and cats are the last to be picked. How crazy is that? If you are on the fence about pit bulls come meet one and fall in love with them or any of the other wonderful animals at the shelter. If you are a senior and looking for a senior friend we have those too.

They are mellow, already trained and just want to relax in their golden years.

So bring the entire family out to see the dogs and cats waiting patiently for loving homes and find your next best friend.

The event is 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Douglas County Animal Shelter at 921 Dump Road in Gardnerville, across from the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

In addition, Scales Reptile Sanctuary, partnered with Hero Pets for Hero Vets, will be set up out front to greet all with a few of their scaly residents and discuss their group and mission. Refreshments will be provided by Lifepoint Church’s Women of Grace. For more info go to dawgrescue.com.
