GRAND PRAIRIE— Mark your calendars and get ready to have a barking good time! Prairie Paws, located at 2222 W. Warrior Trail, will participate in the 2014 ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon weekend by holding a pet adoption event from Oct. 17-19, 2014. Hours are as follows:

  • Friday, Oct. 17: 5-8 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 18: 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
  • Sunday, Oct. 19: noon-5 p.m.

During the ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon, presented by Subaru, Prairie Paws hopes to find loving, responsible homes for hundreds of animals from rescues and shelters all over the metroplex. Animals will be available for adoption for as low as $5. Adoptable pets from Prairie Paws will be sterilized and will receive a microchip, rabies vaccination, flea treatment, the 5-in-1 and kennel cough vaccinations for dogs and the 3-in-1 FVRCP vaccination for cats. All adult dogs will be heartworm tested. Adoptions will also include coupons, giveaways, ID tags and treats for pets. Regular price adoptions at Prairie Paws are $70.

In addition to the adoption events, there will be a variety of activities, games and fun to entertain and educate all animal lovers. There will be music, live entertainment, food trucks and a variety of vendors. Further, the festivities will include an educational aspect to teach residents about animal welfare and responsible ownership. And if that’s not enough, Sponsor Adoptions will hold its annual Spooktacular event, which includes games and fun for the whole family, at Prairie Paws. Low cost vaccinations will also be available.
