UPAWS is sharing love

MARQUETTE — “Share the Love,” a free adoption event, is planned from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter.

UPAWS is hosting this adoption event for pets in conjunction with the ASPCA and Subaru Share the Love Event.

UPAWS received a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, more commonly known as the ASPCA. The $3,300 grant was awarded through the ASPCA and Subaru Share the Love Shelter-Dealership program.

UPAWS and Fox Subaru will collaborate and organize a one-day public adoption event. All adoption fees for this event will be waived.

“UPAWS takes in and cares for nearly 1,300 companion animals a year, and all of these animals are evaluated and readied for adoption into loving community homes. Events like the ‘Share the Love’ Adoption Event are extremely helpful in helping us do just that” said Ann Brownell, UPAWS Community Outreach Coordinator in a news release.

For more information about this ASPCA and Subaru sponsored event, phone 906-475-6661 or email info@upaws.org.

The shelter address is 815 S. State Highway M-553, Gwinn.
