The Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) is hosting its 14th Annual IAMS Home for the Holiday pet adoption drive with a special Kickoff Party to take place this Friday, October 19th at 9:30 a.m. Star of Bravo’s Flipping Out will be present in order to promote the adoption of Phoenix, the amazing kitten who displayed an amazing will to survive and was featured earlier this week in an article describing the caustic chemical burns Phoenix received, and an orphaned purebred Siberian Husky puppy named Peppermint and his adoptive family. This fellow is doing great and is already able to sit, shake and beg.
HWAC is so proud of their Poster Pets. These special pets epitomize everything that their rescue program is about! Facilitating their adoptions gives a bonus thrill to those that get to work with these animals.
The IAMS Home for the Holidays pet adoption drive was formulated as an annual event in order to obtain finding homes for orphaned pets that are available during the holiday season. This 14th year will feature their special kickoff event which will include their very special featured pets – displaying that no pet is out of the question for this great California rescue organization.
The calendar for that day includes:
· 9:30 a.m. Attendees arrive for a welcome and for breakfast treat.
· 9:45 a.m. Welcome statements from HWAC staff and the media in attendance; the introduction to Phoenix and Peppermint!
· 10:00 a.m. Guest of Honor, Jenni Pulos will announce the essay contest to adopt Phoenix while holding the kitten displaying its paws in holiday bedecked bandages. Pulos has helped to facilitate the adoption of IH4TH Poster Puppy Peppermint!
Helen Woodward will also have a holiday tree present that will be decorated with photos of all of their available adoptables. Staff will be available to help celebrate this great annual event!
This event will be the opportunity of a lifetime because they can interview so many wonderful individuals such as Jenni Pulos, Dr. Patricia Carter, HWAC’s Chief Veterinarian (the save vet that is currently treating Phoenix’s burns), the wonderful PR Manager, Jessica Gercke (the promotional individual that gets word out so that more animals are able to be recognized for the great pets that they will be one they find their forever homes), and last but certainly not least, Peppermint’s adoptive family.
The event will take place right at the Helen Woodward Animal Center Companion Animal Hospital Lobby which is located at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe, California.
