Pets are so loved. They often become part of the family and part of ourselves. But what happens to those pets who don’t get blessed with a loving family? Whose lives do they bless and how can you help them? The Souris Valley Animal Shelter wants to get every pet into a loving home and until July 31st, with the sponsorship of Bissell Pet Foundation, they are able offer an extremely discounted rate on pet adoptions at the Empty the Shelters event. The SVAS want these little cats and dogs to have loving owners so much. So if you have been considering adopting a pet, please stop by the shelter this weekend and see the pets available for adoption. You can get approved and get a pet on the same day! Don’t let the rest of the summer go without finding your fur baby!
If you want to support the shelter and animals in general but know you can’t support a pet right now, never fear, the SVAS is participating in the Community Rocks Concert, partnered with Minot State University this summer to raise money for a new x-ray machine for animals. These x-ray machines can cost about $60K and this edition would bring the ability to use the machine within the community and save animal lives. The Community Rocks Concert, which is scheduled for August 20th, combines the best of rock n’ roll with the sounds of a symphony orchestra. General Admission is $45 and a percentage of every ticket sold will go to support the SVAS this year. For more information about this once-a-year event and to buy tickets, go to https://www.communityrocksnd.org.
If you’re still feeling like that sounds awesome but the price tag is a little too steep for you, they have got another solution. The SVAS is on the look out for volunteers to assist with booth set up and assist with seating and much more! The volunteer position comes with the perk of a private concert after a quick training session on Friday the 19th. You can find volunteer information and applications for pet adoption on their website https://svaspets.com/ and on the volunteer app Golden Volunteer Opportunities. Don’t miss the many ways to support the animals of our community this summer!
