NARA holds open adoption event

Six cats and two dogs were rehomed

The Northern Animal Rescue Alliance (NARA) held an open adoption event at Total Pet on Jan. 19.

With many animals looking for a new home, NARA wanted to give the public an opportunity to meet the furry creatures as the non-profit organization has no shelter to keep them in and solely relies on volunteers for fostering.

“Today has been great, six cats and two dogs all have potential homes,” says Laurie Taylor, NARA director and lead cat coordinator. “To know they’re now off the streets, and are going to have their forever home and that love (is great).”

She says that it’s a crucial time for NARA to have the animals adopted. During the winter, many pets tend to be abandoned in the cold and they don’t always enough have volunteer homes to foster them all.

From newborn kittens to starved dogs, Taylor says that it’s been rewarding to see the scared animals make positive transitions into friendly, cuddly pets.

For those looking to adopt, an application must be submitted and a home check would also take place.

“We’re going to want to know that you have a vet that you can have access to,” says Taylor. “(We want to) see that they’re eager to bring an animal into their homes and their lives.
