Animals with hooves and paws will be available for adoption from several local animal organizations at the second annual Hoof and Tail Adoption Event on Aug. 27.
The mega adoption event will feature adoptable dogs, cats and pigs from noon to 4 p.m. at Happy Note Farm, 10623 Cline Ave., Crown Point, Ind. Participating organizations include Alsip to the Rescue, CPR Fund, Hooved Animal Humane Society, Humane Society Calumet Area (HSCA) and Lakeshore PAWS.
Made possible through grant funding from the Crown Point Community Foundation, the event also will include a farmers’ market, an event-wide dog scavenger hunt where dogs can search for treats and prizes, a corn roast and live music from Bourbon Aristocracy.
HSCA’s Estelle Marcus Animal Clinic will offer nail clipping and pet care and wellness information will be available for the public. Attendees also will have the chance to meet ambassador animals from HSCA’s Moraine Ridge Wildlife Rehabilitation Center and learn more about wildlife rehabilitation and humane interaction with native wildlife and the environment.
Each dog or cat adopted at the event will be sent to his or her new home with an adoption pack—including toys, treats, a bandana, and a leash and collar for dogs or a temporary carrier for cats.
HSCA’s Adoption Center at 421 45th Ave, Munster, will be closed Aug. 27 for this special adoption event.
