Pet-tober Fest (Lee’s Paws and Claws)

Fort Scott, KS

If you have ever owned a pet, you know the benefit those furry (or sometimes not) little critters can bring to your home. Of course, we’ve also had those days that turn out to be more of an adventure you bargained for!

We also know how fast un-cared for pets can get into trouble and become malnourished. The good people over at Lee’s Paw & Claws (no-kill) Animal Shelter, help take care of those homeless critters, providing food and shelter. This Saturday, starting at 10am, they have planned a full afternoon of activities that will bring you face to face with some of those who are in their care. It is taking place at the Fort Scott Community College walking trail area from 10am – 3pm.

If you are looking to stretch your legs with your favorite four-legged animal, there will be plenty to do for everyone. Paws and Claws will have an agility run for dogs, photo ops, bake sale and live auction at 2pm to raise funds for continued care and facility improvements.

If you need some basic care for you animal, they will also be offering rabies shots for $7.50, Parvo shots for $10 and if you have been wanting to microchip your animal, you can do that also for $25. There will also be a drawing and the winner will get two pets microchipped!

And if you are looking to provide a great home to one of the animals, they will be adopting out during this event. There will be concessions and pet costumes, seriously, this will be a blast. You can check out more info by clicking here for their Facebook page or their website here.
