Pets Lifeline

Free family activities at the Pets Lifeline Animal Resource Center

Pets Lifeline, the leading animal welfare organization in Sonoma Valley, announces its upcoming first Adoption Fair on Friday, September 29, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturday, September 30, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.— free and open to the public. It will be held at 19686 Eighth St. East, Sonoma, California.

Pets Lifeline encourages people to welcome a furry friend into their lives— there will be 80+ dogs and kittens up for adoption. Special rates are offered during the Adoption Fair: $75/dogs and $50/kittens.

The Adoption Fair kicks off on Friday evening with live entertainment by the local, five piece musical group, ZigZag. Savory offerings from El Coyote Taco Truck and sweet treats from Harvey’s Donuts will be available, setting the perfect backdrop for celebrating animal welfare and community spirit. Saturday’s carnival-themed event promises fun for the whole family, complete with BBQ’d hot dogs, face painting, cotton candy, popcorn, giveaways, samplings from Sonoma Creamery and Sonoma Brands and more. Amidst the carnival atmosphere, the spotlight remains on the heartwarming mission of connecting beloved cats and dogs with their forever families.

As attendees navigate the bustling Adoption Fair, they can swiftly complete their applications on-site at dedicated booths. Following that, interviews conducted by the Pets Lifeline team allow for quick assessments to ensure the perfect match between prospective pet owners and their potential furry friends. If attendees find their ideal companions during the introductions, they can leave the fair that very day with their new family members.

Over the years, Pets Lifeline’s tireless efforts have yielded remarkable results. The organization has provided shelter, care, and protection to an impressive 20,000 companion animals. More than 12,000 cats and dogs have found their forever homes through Pets Lifeline’s adoption initiatives. Additionally, the organization’s dedication to reuniting lost and frightened pets with their families has successfully returned 7,148 beloved companions to their worried owners.

Nationally, there are more animals in shelters than there are adoptions occurring. “Join Pets Lifeline for our first Adoption Fair to unite as many cats and dogs with their forever families and provide a bright future for the animals of Sonoma Valley, ” said Nancy King, CEO of Pets Lifeline. “Together, we can make a difference and give these animals the loving homes they deserve.”
