Animal adoption carnival set in Edmond
Edmond Involved, the Oklahoma City suburb's youth volunteer program, is hosting an animal adoption carnival. The event is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 21 at E.C. Hafer Park.
EDMOND — An animal adoption carnival, sponsored by Edmond Involved, is scheduled for April 21 at E.C. Hafer Park. The event will benefit the Edmond Animal Welfare shelter.
Edmond Involved is the city's youth volunteer program.
Animals will be on hand for people to adopt from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be a raffle, drinks and snacks available to purchase.
“This is something that as a group we felt passionate about and we wanted to help in any way we could,” said Kayla Bratcher, Edmond Involved president. “I hope that the project will raise awareness for the Edmond animal shelter.”
Bratcher is a senior at Edmond North High School.
Animal welfare staff will be there with answers about volunteering, fostering and adoption opportunities through the shelter, which is operated by the Edmond Police Department.
“As our shelter is always over its intended capacity, we value any opportunity to get public exposure to help us find forever homes for the many great dogs and cats waiting for adoption,” police Capt. Nicki Smith said.
The cost is $25 to adopt a dog or cat. All animals are spayed and neutered and have all required vaccinations.
