Get Your Paws on a New Pet

If you’re thinking about adding a pet to your family this summer, stop by your Library on Friday, June 18! We’re partnering with The Humane Society of Washington County to connect you with sweet cats and dogs in need of homes. The Humane Society will bring kittens, cats, puppies, and older dogs to the Library from 12-6 p.m.

JCPL Teen Services Manager Amy Taylor says, “The theme of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge is ‘Tails to Tales,’ which combines two of our favorite things: animals and books! We’re excited to connect you with a new furry friend.”

You can go through the whole adoption process that day at the Library. Puppies are $200, adult dogs are $135, and cats and kittens are $35. This price includes the animals’ vaccines and microchips, and being spayed/neutered. Contact the Humane Society at (423) 926-8533 for more about available animals and adoption details.

We are also collecting donated supplies for the Humane Society through July. Donations can include trash bags, paper towels, litter, latex-free gloves, animal toys, and cat and dog food. Humane Society donations should be dropped off at the Circulation Desk.

Contact Amy Taylor at (423) 434-4349 for more information about the pet adoption event. If you’d like to learn more about your Library’s Summer Reading Challenge, click here.
