Media Advisory - Toronto Animal Services Pet Social and Open House
Toronto Animal Services (TAS) is inviting members of the public to a Pet Social
and Open House to celebrate Adopt-A-Dog Month, which is running through October.

On Saturday, October 22, the North District Animal Centre will open its doors
to showcase pets available for adoption. Councillors Maria Augimeri and Paula
Fletcher will officially unveil the new TAS logo at the festivities, which will
also include Centre tours, a BBQ, games, colouring contests, face painting and
special guests.

Adoption fees for adult cats will be reduced for the day. For $50, people can
adopt adult cats with up-to-date vaccinations and microchipping for pet
identification. Each cat will also leave with gift certificates redeemable for
rabies vaccination, surgical sterilization and an initial veterinary health

Family celebrations will also take place at the East Region and Central Region
Animal Centres, and the first 50 people to adopt a pet or purchase an animal
licence at each Centre will receive a t-shirt with the new TAS logo. All
animals adopted on this day will leave with a bag filled with free goodies,
plus a photo taken with their new family.
