Suffolk Humane sets adoption events

Published 5:51 pm Saturday, January 25, 2014

The Suffolk Humane Society and Suffolk Animal Care plan to celebrate the month of love with a pair of adopt-a-thons that seek to connect residents with pets that need their love.

The first event will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 1 at Suffolk Animal Care, 124 Forest Glen Drive. The second will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 22 at the Petsmart in Northern Suffolk, 6243 College Drive.

“Most of us give roses or chocolates for Valentine’s Day,” said Lee Murphy, director of adoptions at Suffolk Humane. “Imagine giving a gift that keeps on giving, one that supplies unconditional, never-ending love. That’s all these animals really want to do, anyway. Give the gift of a forever-home to a pet this Valentine’s Day season and let the love run deeper than flowers and sugar.”
