For those interested in bringing home the gift of a furry friend this holiday season, PDC wholesale and GAIN will hold a pet holiday adoption event on Saturday, at GAIN’s facilities in Yigo, from 12-4 pm.
The event will feature a special adoption fee promotion of $100 instead of GAIN’s standard $125 adoption fee, a free goodie bag with animal products offered by PDC per adoption, microchipping, rabies vaccinations, and pet registration services by the Guam Department of Agriculture.
PNC spoke to GAIN Executive Director Alison Hadley earlier today, who shared the upcoming event’s other activities or services: “We’ll have the SNIP Clinic and Boonie Flights here to answer any questions— get people signed up if they’re looking to have their animals fixed, and then, of course, some other vendors who just do their own kind of home business stuff–obviously, animal-focused type goodies—- I believe Little Wangz will be up here offering some items. We’ll have some food trucks, some good food, and good drinks while you’re here perusing the fur babies.”
As the event takes place during the holiday season, Hadley sheds more light on the companionship that animals could bring to people, especially those who may not have loved ones during this time: “Animals are, like you said, they’re just so important. They add so much to your life, and— the holidays can be kind of a tough time for a lot of people— if you don’t have family on island or if you just maybe aren’t as tied very closely to different parts of the community as you wish you were. So animals really offer that type of companionship that you are maybe feeling like you’re not getting anywhere elsewhere.”
