Annual ALL FUR LOVE Pet Adoption Day

Assemblymember Quirk has a great upcoming event for Valentine’s Day:

“Come find true love this Valentine’s Day at the Hayward Animal Shelter.

Each year more than 800,000 animals are taken into California’s private and public shelters where fewer than half find forever homes. I am proud to partner once again with the Hayward Animal Shelter to host our annual All Fur Love Pet Adoption Day.

We will be offering free and reduced cost pet adoptions to qualified homes!

Come and learn about how to adopt a pet, proper pet care, animal safety laws and updates on current legislation protecting pets.

The shelter will also be taking donations for those who already have furry companions and would like to take a photo at the Valentine's Day themed photo booth. My dog, Luna, and I make this an annual tradition and hope you can join us.”
