On Saturday, April 21st, from 10 AM to 1 PM, the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA is partnering with Albemarle County Animal Control to host Homeward Bound—A Pet Identification and Licensing Event. The SPCA will be offering FREE pet identification tags to everyone who attends, one and three year City and County Dog Licenses will be available for purchase with proof of current Rabies Vaccination, discounted pet collars will be for sale, and County Animal Control Officers will be available to answer questions from the public. Chick-Fil-A will have refreshments for sale with proceeds benefiting the SPCA and Homeward Bound, the movie, will be playing in the SPCA training room.
“One in three pets will get lost in their lifetime and proper identification is their quickest ticket home,” says Lisa Lane, Marketing Manager of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA. “We are happy to host the Homeward Bound event as another of the many ways the SPCA reaches out to help the community keep their pets safe.”
The mission of the Charlottesville-Albemarle SPCA is to provide a safe and nurturing environment for the lost, abandoned, and homeless animals of the City of Charlottesville and the County of Albemarle and to increase the number of these animals being placed in appropriate, loving, and permanent homes through adoptions, foster care, and outreach, and to set a standard of excellence and leadership in shelter animal care, humane education, and progressive animal welfare programs.
