MSPCA-Angell and Northeastern Animal Shelter are hosting a Valentine’s Day “adoptathon” with 100% fee waived for small animals for adoption. They encouraged customers to find their “lover” at the event.
Small animals include rabbits, guinea pigs, birds, and other similar sized pets. The event is taking place Feb. 12-13 at MSPCA shelters in Boston, Methuen and Cape Cod, and the Northeastern Animal Shelter in Salem, according to an MSPCA statement.
To take advantage of the offer, customers must register online and places are limited. The MSPCA-Angell website recommends taking a picture of the cage the animal will be housed in before signing up, as some cages are “not ideal” for rabbits and guinea pigs.
The MSPCA also recommends being prepared to drive the new friend home on the day of the appointment and bringing all the necessary items to do so.
