CBU and Humane Society Team Up for Animal Adoption Fair

Memphis- The Christian Brothers University (CBU) Delta Chi chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau will hold its first annual Midtown Memphis Adoption Fair and Family Day in conjunction with the Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County on Saturday, April 2 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Buckman Quad on the CBU campus. 

Puppies and kittens will be available for adoption along with food vendors, carnival games for all ages, raffle prizes and music at the Adoption Fair and Family Day. All games and vendors have a built-in donation requirement, so even if you already have pets, any fun you participate in will be going towards the good cause of buying food and paying for the needed surgeries of the rescued animals.

In addition, John Robinson, the Director of Operations at the Humane Society, will be the guest speaker at the AST Awareness Talk on Dog Fighting and Animal Cruelty to be held on Thursday, March 31 at 6:00 p.m. in Spain Auditorium on the CBU campus. At the lecture, Robinson will discuss the dangers dogs face every day in the City of Memphis.

The Humane Society of Memphis and Shelby County has been providing shelter, food and medical care for thousands of unwanted, neglected and abused animals since 1933. An important part of their work is giving animals the emotional support, training and socialization abilities that will allow them to be adopted into new and loving homes.

Admission to both events is free and they are open to the public. For more information, contact Ariel Kingsley at akingsle@cbu.edu or Linda Larrabee, Humane Society, at llarrabee@memphishumane.org or (901) 937-3900 ext. 3911. ###
