The Tri-County Animal Shelter is pleased to announce the following April monthly promotions and reminders:

Furry Feline Friends for April Fools’ (Saturday, April 1)

National Pet Identification Week (Wednesday, April 19- Tuesday, April 25)
Identification tags and microchips are important if your furry friend wanders or becomes lost. Identification may be your pet’s ticket home. During this week, the shelter will sell pet identification tags for $1 and microchips for $10.

DogFest (Saturday, April 29- Sunday, April 30)
Join the shelter at the 6th annual Maryland DogFest at the Charles County Fairgrounds (8440 Fairground Road, La Plata) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring your dog for a day of games, animal acts, and animal vendors. Come visit the shelter at their booth for adoptable dogs.

Spring Flowers Bring Kitten Showers

Dry and canned kitten food, kitten milk replacers, kitten nursing bottles, toys, litter, shoe boxes, and newspapers are appreciated.
