Due to impending thunderstorms the Midnight Madness event is relocating to the McKamey Animal Center at 4500 North Access Road. For one night only on Saturday McKamey Animal Center is remaining open until midnight with hundreds of dogs and cats available for free adoption from 4 p.m.
to midnight at the McKamey Animal Center at 4500 North Access Road in Chattanooga. St. Martin of Tours Episcopal Church at 7547 E. Brainerd Road was the original site, but due to thunderstorms the event is being relocated back to McKamey.
As an incentive to adopt shelter animals McKamey will be waiving all adoption fees with purchase of a $25 “Pet Pack” that includes the necessary starter items for a new pet. All McKamey animals and all animals are spayed or neutered, vaccinated according to their age, given parasite prevention, and cats are leukemia-tested and dogs are heartworm-tested.
Hundreds of other shelters across the country are hosting Clear the Shelters, a nationwide pet adoption drive. The original intent of doing an off-site adoption was to attract people who don’t like to visit animal shelters and to reach out to new potential adopters.
The goal for the day is to adopt as many as possible of the 250+ animals available at the center.
