Whether you already have a beloved pet or are looking for the right person to add one (or two) to your family, there is something for everyone at the FOCCAS ‘Love Changes Everything’ adoption event. And the $ 10 microchip clinic on May 22.
The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Upper Cumberland Cancer Care, 707 South Main St., Crossville. Trained volunteers will microchip your pet for just $ 10, including free lifetime registration. Entertainment will include a menagerie of adoptable cats, dogs, puppies and kittens.
There will also be a variety of pet related items available for purchase. All proceeds from this sale will be donated to the FOCCAS program for animals in distress. This program is essential to our mission of meeting the needs of companion animals in the community. Funds from this program are used to provide emergency medical care to stray or unowned animals that are found sick or injured. Sometimes it is used to save a pet’s life when the owner cannot afford the necessary medical treatment and chooses to hand over their pet to FOCCAS rescue and allow the organization to cover the expenses. In 2020, FOCCAS spent nearly $ 50,000 on this program and saved countless cats and dogs who had no other options. Donations are still needed to support this program.
No pets will be adopted on the day of the event unless an adopter has previously approved them by our adoption team. This is a great opportunity to meet some (but not all) of the adoptable pets, get to know them, and find the right one for you.
If you would like to host a pet for FOCCAS, information and applications will be available. The volunteers are happy to explain how the sponsorship works.
Everyone is welcome, even if you just need a “dog” solution.
