The North Belle Vernon Community Bank Park, 702 Graham St., held ‘Pet Adoption Day’ on May 19, 2018 from noon – 4 p.m., and people were informed of great animals just waiting for loving homes.

Volunteers show love to Fayette dog Taz. They are (l-r) Jason Harbison; his son, Jack; and Brenna LaMendola.

Two adoption agencies attended the event, and it turned out to be a beautiful day. Fayette Friends of Animals brought two dogs, Haleigh and Taz. Washington Area Humane Society brought a photo album of a large selection of available pets.

Fayette Friends of Animals is located on 223 Searights Herbert Road in Uniontown. Terri Zidek and Carol Warman were the friendly volunteers from Fayette. Their hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1 - 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from noon – 5 p.m. You may also visit their website or Facebook page.
Washington Area Humane Society, is located at 1527 Route 137, Eighty Four. Their shelter is closed Sunday and Monday and is open Tuesday and Thursday, from noon – 7 p.m. and Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from noon – 5 p.m. Their fees for pets range from $40 for senior cats to $200 for puppies.

If you are interested in pet adoption, give one of these shelters a chance. Rescue a loving animal to give them a great home.

The event was sponsored by North Belle Vernon Rec Commission, Merrick Pet Food, and others. NBV set up collection sites for donations of every kind, which were divided between the participating adoption agencies. RJ Sokol, Chair of Parks and Recreation and NBV Councilman, said, “The NBV Community Bank Rec Commission will…be giving everything they get to their pet friends.”

Don Pabisz of Merrick Pet Foods is one of the sponsors. He offered free samples of pet food and pet health advice.

Sokol’s wife, Lynn, volunteer for NBV Community Bank Rec Commission, said, “This is only our second year in doing this; so we are still working at creating a positive relationship with area pet adoption agencies. We don’t need or want monies to help our furry orphaned friends find homes. We do this because the park and pets have something very much in common: they both add love, care and fun into people’s lives.”
