Huntley Pet Reunion/Adoption Saturday

Huntley's Animal House Shelter will hod its Fourth Annual Pet Reunion Saturday from Noon to 4 pm at the pet shelter on Ernesti Road. It's the start of the Shelter's ASPCA $100,000 Challenge to adopt 905 animals, canine and feline, from August through October.  The challenge is if Animal House can do it, they're in the running for a grant to ...well, that's still supposed to be a secret.  More anon.

Planned festivities include new shelter gear, dog and pet-themed jewelry, kids' games, temporary tattoos, a dunk tank, bouncy castle and food and beverages, not to mention a lot of dogs and cats who need homes and visiting inmates who found them. There'll be a K-9 demonstration by McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, too, and low-cost vaccines and micro-chipping and a lot of pet-related vendors.

Sunday AHS has another adoption event scheduled at the Algonquin Petco store on South Randall with another one set there Aug. 28.
