HSWC Celebrates St. Patrick's Day with "Lucky" Adoption Discounts

The Humane Society of Washington County is celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with a pot of gold and is giving adopters the chance to test their luck.

Throughout the week of March 13th – 17th, all adopters can choose from the HSWC’s “You’re in Luck” pot of gold coins. Each coin will be marked with a different percentage discount for the adoption fee.

“Offering discounted adoptions with a pot of gold coins is a fun way for us to celebrate the St. Patrick’s Day holiday,” said Cathy Jacques, Adoptions Supervisor. “After all, the adopted animals are very lucky to be finding their forever homes.”

The promotion runs Monday – Thursday for all animals. Because feline adoption fees are always waived on Fridays, the “You’re in Luck” adoption promotion will apply only to dogs and small animals, such as rabbits and parakeets, on that day.

Pictures of all adoptable animals can be found on the shelter website, hswcmd.org. Adoptable animals have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, vaccinated according to age, and given worm and flea preventatives prior to being placed up for adoption. The HSWC also provides adopters with a complimentary health visit at a participating veterinarian, as well as an option for 30 days of free health insurance for their new family member.

In addition to the adoption promotion, the HSWC will be decorating the Adoptions Lobby with a St. Patrick’s Day Twig Tree. From March 13th – 17th, all individuals who come to the HSWC and make any donation will receive a personalized shamrock with a shelter animal’s picture on it. These shamrocks will adorn the St. Patrick’s Day Twig Tree through the end of March.

Specific donations needed at this time are kitten supplies, canned tuna in water, canned dog food and canned cat food. Monetary donations are always welcome.

Throughout the week, there will also be a 20% discount off of leashes and collars in the HSWC retail section.
