Pet-A-Palooza to take over Curtis Lumber

"Maybe we'll get lucky and have them all come from here," laughed Girardi.

In addition to the ADK Humane Society and Elmore SPCA, Pet-A-Palooza will also include representatives and information from the St. John Feral Cat Fund, Franklin County SPCA, Northern Greyhound Adoptions, Palmer Veterinary Clinic, Adirondack Mobile Veterinary Service, and Tails of the Adirondacks.

Palmer Veterinary Clinic has offered to provide free first-time examinations for newly-adopted animals, said Girardi.

The overall generosity and support of the organizations, local media sponsor WPTZ Newschannel 5, and the Curtises is something Deyoe feels will help make a huge difference in the community.

"I'm especially proud to see our owner and the company I work for putting this time and effort and their resources of their stores and employees to help all these pets get adopted," said Deyoe.

Pet-A-Palooza will be held at each of the Curtis Lumber locations from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Those filling out applications for adoption the day of the event will qualify for the $75 credit toward adoption fees regardless if the animals are taken home that day.
