OTHELLO — Pawsitive Alliance will be hosting the eighth annual statewide Shelter Open House on Saturday, Oct. 5. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of animal shelters across Washington and the homeless animals in their care and to help those pets find forever homes.

Animal shelters in every region of the state are participating for this event. Adams County Pet Rescue will be noon to 5 p.m.; Grant County Animal Outreach is from noon to 6 p.m. with a special event “In with the New!”

The Pawsitive Alliance website www.pawsitivealliance.org will be continuously updated to show a full list of participating organizations. More than 20 Washington State animal shelters will be opening their doors to host an open house and highlight the great work that they do.

“We are very excited about this year’s Shelter Open House,” Tereza Marks, executive director of Pawsitive Alliance, said. “Shelters across the state are getting involved and being creative to get their animals adopted. Check out your local shelter to see what great ideas they have planned and stop by to meet your new best friend.”

In addition to the Pawsitive Alliance website, the Pawsitive Alliance Facebook Shelter Open House event page will list the promotions planned by the shelters for this fun, annual event. Follow #shelteropenhouse during and after the event for updates and heartwarming adoption stories.

Sponsors for the event include Martha Faulkner, RSVP Real Estate; Petcurean; Good Neighbor Vet; Mud Bay; and DML Insurance.

Pawsitive Alliance is a 501(c)3 organization whose mission is to help end the euthanasia of cats and dogs in Washington by increasing adoptions, supporting spay and neuter programs, and improving pet retention.

The organization’s vision is a healthy and happy home for every cat and dog in Washington.

Pawsitive Alliance is best known for its #WhyNotMePets program, which works with shelters and rescues throughout the state to find homes for animals that have been homeless more than two months or have barriers to adoption, such as age or disability.
