Adoptable Pets at Pirnstill Health Fair

Clare County Animal Shelter volunteers will have pets available for same-day adoption at the Paula Pirnstill Memorial Health and Safety Fair from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 21 at the Farwell Area Schools. Also available will be shareable information on how to help prevent dog bites, cat scratches, and ways to promote pet safety.

The pets will be in a different location than in previous years – a quieter spot for the pet. Look for the signs guiding visitors down the hall.

For more information see the shelter’s Facebook page at Animal Shelter - Clare County.
