McKamey Animal Center Hosts Fee-Waived Adoption Event Saturday

Thursday, September 16, 2021

McKamey Animal Center announces its biggest adoption event of the year. This Saturday, adoption fees will be waived for every animal available. 

The Center will also be open for an extended period of time on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., in an effort to accommodate as many people as possible. This is the final weekend of a national campaign, Clear the Shelters. While MAC encourages potential adopters to make an appointment ahead of time, walk-ins will not be turned away. 

This event comes at a critical time for the Center, as they are still considered to be over-capacity. MAC currently has over 500 animals in their care, most of which are available for adoption.

“We are so excited to have our Clear the Shelter event on Saturday.  We have an overabundance of amazing dogs and cats that have been waiting too long to be adopted – I hope that by Saturday evening, each and every one of them will be sleeping in their new homes and our kennels will be empty,” said Inga Fricke, MAC executive director. 

The fee-waived adoptions, do not cover City license fees, leashes, collars or carriers. All animals adopted from McKamey Animal Center are spayed/neutered, microchipped and are up to date on all age-appropriate vaccinations and preventative medications. 

To see animals available for adoption, visit www.mckameyanimalcenter.org. 

Adoption appointments can be made online, or by calling the MAC Adoptions Team at 423-305-6514.

Pretending Is Dangerous

I’ve ‘seen some stuff’ in my time. I have followed politics for many years. I’m retired, I’m a realist and a Vietnam veteran, pretty much in that order. I’m not an alarmist or a conspiracy theorist. That said, I have never in my life been so concerned about the future of this Republic. Politics was once a legitimate contest of ideas, put forth by political figures who were sincere, ...

Roy Exum: ‘Picciola,’ At Age 185

I came in touch with a man named James Baldwin last week and he’s a man I really like. Oh, I never met him in person … no, he was born in 1841 and died 96 years ago so I have only become a recent admirer through his books. A self-educated man, he became the Superintendent of Schools in Indiana at the age of 24 for 18 years. Then, not so curiously, he worried that children were missing ... (click for more)
