Thirteen local animal shelters join forces from February 9- February 16th to recognize Homeless Animal Awareness Week (HAAW).
During Homeless Animal Awareness Week, animal shelters are reminding their friends and animal lovers to spread the word that local shelters are full of wonderful pets waiting for their new family to walk through the door.
Stop by a participating shelter and pick up an orange ribbon to wear and show your support. The shelters are spreading the word by using the following hashtags on social media: #HR4PETS, #HAAW, #homeslessanimalawarenessweek.
