Luck O'doption Weekend in Pasadena March 15-17

 St. Patrick’s Day weekend will be a lucky weekend for many animals at the Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA (PHS). The animal welfare agency created “The Luck of the Irish O’doption Weekend” to help animals find homes. The event starts Friday, March 15 and lasts through Sunday, March 17.

Every adopter will try their luck and pick a prize out of the “Pot of Gold.” Prizes include:

·    Adoption fee completely waived ($70 for cats; $125 for dogs)
·    50 percent off adoption fee
·    Toys for pets
·    Gift certificate for cat nail trimming or a bath for dogs
·    Gift certificate to the PHS Pet Store
·    New collar
·    Pasadena Humane Society car magnet 

“We’re always thinking of ways to get animals into good homes,” says Kevin McManus, adoptions supervisor at PHS. “With a bit of luck, this event should do just that.”

All adopters will receive a package of homemade dog treats thanks to The Serendipitous Dog.
Additionally, all dogs adopted on Friday, March 15 get a complimentary bath thanks to Hollywood Grooming and a half-off gift certificate for a future bath. The promotion is also available on PHS’ Mobile Outreach Unit, which will be at Petco in Pasadena on Saturday and the Wistaria Festival in Sierra Madre on Sunday.
