Lake County Animal Shelter Holds Pupsicle Event to Help Place Dogs

1.1 min read| Published On: May 24th, 2024|
This Memorial Day weekend, the Lake County Animal Shelter is thrilled to invite families to share a popsicle with a prospective pooch. Pup-seekers can stop by the animal shelter any day over the three-day weekend to enjoy a frozen treat with their best friend candidates. The event is a wonderful opportunity for adopters to share a moment with one of the Shelter’s amazing dogs while deciding if the pup is a good fit for their family.
In addition to free popsicles, the Shelter has waived adoption fees through the end of May to help pets find their new, loving families. The event starts on Saturday, May 25, and will continue through Memorial Day, May 27.
“We want all of our pets to find their forever families,” Whitney Boylston, Director of Animal Services, says. “We have so many amazing dogs here at the shelter who can’t wait to go home with their new best friends. We want to make that special connection for every animal here.”
The Shelter is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will be open from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Memorial Day, May 27, to host the event. Adoption appointments can be made in advance online to help families search through the available dogs and schedule times with those they are most interested in meeting.
