Pet adoption day takes place Saturday

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Wilmington Island Animal Hospital and local animal rescue groups will host its second Animal Adoption Day on March 5.

The monthly event takes place the first Saturday of the month and runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This event gives local animal rescue groups a regular location to meet with potential pet owners.

All the involved rescue groups are not-for-profit organizations and any collected adoption fees go directly to those groups, according to Wilmington Island Animal Hospital.

When pets are adopted, the hospital will provide coupons to adopters for a free first examination and consultation fee, by scheduled appointment.

Wilmington Island Animal Hospital is located at 7802 U.S. Highway 80 E in Savannah.
