Series of Adoption Events Start Saturday

Proceeds Benefit Combat Vets, Shelter Pets

WEDNESDAY, MAY 24, 2017 – A series of adoption events specifically benefiting programs that assist combat veterans and shelter animals kicks off Saturday (May 27) at Riverside County’s three largest shelters.

The first-ever Homeless Pets & Combat Vets adoption series will run on five specified Saturdays between Memorial Day weekend and just after the Fourth-of-July holiday weekend. The special events will feature some special offerings by hosts that include four county supervisorial districts and the county’s executive office.

Adoption fees have been lowered to $49. Of that special rate, $20 of each adoption will benefit an organization selected by the Riverside County Department of Veterans’ Services: Reaching New Heights Foundation, a nonprofit, charitable organization that assists veterans transitioning from active duty and homelessness.

Another $20 of the adoption fee will benefit the Animal Solutions Konnection (ASK) Foundation, an organization that works closely with Riverside County Animal Services with programs that benefit homeless pets and programs that assist needy pet owners.

The remaining $9 of the adoption fee will offset some of the shelter costs associated with caring for the pet.
