Add a furry new member to your family or get your current pet vaccinated and microchipped when Northeast State hosts the Dog Days of Summer pet adoption event on Saturday, April 22 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Blountville campus, 2425 Highway 75.
Hosted by the College’s Office of Scholarship Programs and Student Needs, this free, open-to-the-public event provides the opportunity to adopt dogs and cats from several area adoption agencies. Veterinarians will also be on hand to provide vaccinations and microchipping for current pet owners and offer tips on how to choose and care for animals.
“We will have lots of animals to choose from,” said Joshua Johnson, coordinator of County and State Scholarships at the College. “We want this to be a fun event that will get the community involved in a worthwhile cause.”
Our event partners include Appalachian Animal Hospital, Airport Pet Emergency Clinic, Natural Pet Supply, Humane Society of Washington County, the SBK Animal Center, Elizabethton/Carter County Animal Shelter, and The Bridge Home No Kill Animal Rescue. Adoption fees are determined by the participating partners. Vaccination fees will be $15.00 for distemper and $10.00 for rabies while microchipping will be $15.00. Leashed dogs and cats are welcome to attend.
