Shelter plans Midnight Madness

Published 9:57 pm Thursday, February 19, 2009

The Suffolk Humane Society and Suffolk Animal Control will join other shelters participating in a statewide Midnight Madness Adoptathon on Saturday.

The shelters will be open until midnight on Saturday. At each location, staff will fortify themselves with extra coffee and dress in their best flannel pajamas, fuzzy slippers and robes in honor of the event. Curlers and mud masks will be optional.

The purpose of the event is to find as many homes as possible for homeless animals hoping for adoption. Refreshments, snacks, raffles and prizes will be offered throughout the evening.
