‘Collars for a Cause’ Wednesday

MARQUETTE – The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter will have its “Collars for a Cause” event Wednesday in which Fox Marquette pays for all pet adoptions.

The event will take place from noon-6 p.m. Wednesday at Fox Marquette which is located along U.S. 41 in Marquette and will help an animal in need.

Collars for a Cause is a free, offsite pet adoption fair that helps animals in need of a loving family and good home, find one. In addition to finding good homes for animals, Collars for a Cause helps raise money for the Upper Peninsula Animal Shelter. The Collars for a Cause pet adoption event is being brought to the community by Fox Marquette and Charter Media.

UPAWS will be bringing animals that need homes to Fox Marquette. In return, Fox Marquette will be paying the basic adoption fees of all animals adopted from the UPAWS between noon-6 p.m. Wednesday.

People interested in adopting a pet must stop by Fox Marquette to see the animals and obtain an adoption voucher. The animals at the shelter, Petsmart and in foster care are included too but people must stop at FOX Marquette first to obtain a voucher.
