CLOVIS, Calif. (KGPE) – If you’re looking for company and a loyal friend, Miss Winkles is here for you. The pet adoption center in Clovis opened on Tuesday after 16 months of welcoming families by appointment only or relying on social media to promote four-legged friends.
“On Saturday July 31, we will have a reopening celebration,” said Erin Ford-Horio, Animal Services Supervisor. “We’re going to have a Kona snow cone truck here to help us celebrate. “
The shelter closed due to COVID-19 in early March 2020, just days before their biggest fundraiser of the year. Ford-Horio said he was delighted to resume operations.
“Having the ability to really open the door and allow more people to enter the building allows more animals to come into their homes. Some animals really don’t show off very well online or in pictures, or their personalities aren’t really captured in a photo.
Adoptions are $ 25.
“All adopted animals are sterilized or neutered, vaccinated as much as they can be for their age. Obviously, puppies or kittens may need a few more reminders depending on their age. They are also microchipped and come with a tag and collar.
The animal shelter invites families to meet the puppies and kittens, even if you are not quite ready to adopt.
“If you have any questions about them or about pet ownership in general, we’ll help you answer them. And if they just want to come visit and say hello to the animals, they can too.
The Miss Winkles reopening celebration will take place on Saturday, July 31, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at their Clovis facility, and dozens of pets will be available for adoption during the event.
“We can’t wait to see people again. “
