Sonoma County Animal Services “Senior to Senior” Adoption Event
• Sponsored by the Oakmont Canine Club, the Silver Paws event was a HUGE success!
Scheduled for 9AM to 11AM on Saturday 8/27; folks were already lined up at the Berger lawn by 8:30AM. By 11:00 AM, Five, very happy and excited pups had gone to their new “furever” home. By the time you are reading this, 2 additional pups, who were pending, are probably now in their new “furever” homes. A total of 7 dogs placed in new loving homes, and all placements at zero cost to their new humans. If you are looking for a new pup, check the Website for Sonoma County Animal Services. Under Division of Animal Services, Click on All Dogs & Puppies, to see a list and photos of adoptable pups; or call for an appointment (707) 565-7100

• Another good resource for pet adoption, which has a special zero cost program for Seniors, is Dogwood Animal Rescue Project. DARP is a unique, non-profit animal-rescue organization located in Sonoma County. They are foster-based, meaning animals are not held in a shelter but are cared for in the homes of volunteers until adopted.
