Norwalk's Park Animal Hospital is teaming up with local animal rescue organization, PAWS (Pet Animal Welfare Society), this holiday season with a party celebrating furry friends on Sunday, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m., at the hospital's Norwalk location, 17 Park St. The event is free and open to the public.
Activities include a raffle with exciting prizes benefitting PAWS, pet nutrition information provided by Pawprint Market, plus a hot chocolate beverage bar and yummy treats courtesy of Book-a-Cook.
Representatives from PAWS will be on hand, along with the staff of Park Animal Hospital. Of course, this will also be an excellent time to meet pets from PAWS looking for a "fur-ever" home.
PAWS was founded in 1962 to rescue homeless dogs and cats, and place them in permanent homes. Many of the dogs face euthanasia at local pounds, while the majority of the cats are either strays or have been abandoned and left to roam the streets. In addition, some of the pets that come to PAWS have been relinquished by owners who are no longer able to care for them.
PAWS rescues more than 100 dogs and 400 cats every year and finds them new homes.
Park Animal Hospital provides quality health care for dogs and cats in Fairfield County through two offices in Norwalk and Darien. Owned and operated by husband-and-wife veterinarian team, Drs. Damian Battersby and Shelley Skopit, the hospital offers a wide range of services, including acupuncture and other healing arts, which are offered by few other vets in the region.
