McKamey Animal Center Annual Holiday All Nighter Is Friday

Monday, December 9, 2019

The McKamey Animal Center annual Holiday All Nighter will be Friday from 10 a.m.-10 p.m. with 12 non-stop hours of adoptions.

The event features $25 cat and dog adoption fees and excludes puppies and ambassadors. Each adoption includes spay/neuter, microchip, vaccines, parasite prevention and a week of food. This is an over $300 value.

To prevent overcrowding and stress (for people and animals) please plan to check-in outside the building under heated tents.

Waiting areas with activities, selfie stations, hot cocoa, fire pit, and holiday movies will also take place outside. People are asked to dress appropriately as wait times will be longer than usual.

All animals must leave in a crate or on a leash. People may bring their own or purchase one from MAC. Those who live within the city of Chattanooga, Red Bank, or Lakesite will also need to purchase a $10 city license.

There will be free photos with Santa for new adopters.

A Lack Of Civility At The Women's Rally

Interrupting an invited female speaker with displays of yelling and holding up disparaging signs is wrong. The women before me that broke the barriers in male-dominated professions would be embarrassed ... (click for more)
