Black Friday Name Your Price Day At McKamey Animal Center

Thursday, November 21, 2019

McKamey Animal Center will hold its annual Name Your Price Black Friday adoption event from 10 a.m.- p.m.

"This is our 5th annual Name Your Price Black Friday event and despite how busy this day is throughout the community it has always resulted in dozens of animals going to new homes," said Jamie McAloon, executive director. "This year our goal is 100 adoptions. The center currently has over 500 animals in care. We hope to see many of our supporters and new faces at the center for this exciting event." 

Guests can expect to complete an application to adopt prior to entering the building and longer than usual wait times. MAC will have multiple heated tents outside for seating with a few activities for children, which will keep the Center from overcrowding and causing stress to the animals.

Every adoption includes spay/neuter, parasite prevention, microchip, and food/care for a week. Residents of the city of Chattanooga, Lakesite, or Red Bank will be required to purchase their city pet license at the time of adoption, and all pets must leave the building in a carrier or on a leash. If you do not have one, you can purchase one at MAC.

Additionally, from 12-4 p.m., MAC is setting up an additional heated tent with two backdrops for families to capture photos with Santa (with or without a pet.) For $20 guests can leave with a holiday photo with their new fur baby.

Those who cannot adopt but would like to support the animals of MAC may make a donation here
