The Twin Falls Animal Shelter has a special pet adoption event where all of the costs have been taken care of for you by a special family donation.

The event is called "Whiskers in Wonderland" and it happens Thursday, December 15 through Saturday, December 17. Debbie Blackwood from People For Pets (Twin Falls Animal Shelter) explained how this special event was made possible.

Debbie: I received a phone call from the generous Janice Seagraves Family Foundation saying they wanted to sponsor an adoption event to ensure that all adoptable animals available find a home for Christmas.

An added bonus is that each family that is approved to adopt an animal will also receive a bag of food free of charge, thanks to the Seagraves family.

The process of adopting a pet is a relatively simple process. Debbie described how it works.

You come to the animal shelter. You find an adoptable pet. You contact one of the friendly staff adoption counselors, fill out an application. We look that over and if all matches up with the temperament test and the animal is available for adoption, we'll put you together with that animal for no charge and give you a bag of food.
