ECAC to participate in the Annual CAHS Holiday Open House & Adoption Event
The Eaton County Animal Control (ECAC), a division of the Sheriff’s office, works very closely with the Capital Area Humane Society (CAHS). CAHS accepts many animals each year for adoption from the ECAC shelter. Also, several times each year CAHS Veterinarians and staff come to the ECAC shelter in Charlotte and conduct a pet fair providing free pet vaccinations, worming, and wellness exams for Eaton County residents. Additionally, CAHS provides emergency medical care to ECAC Shelter animals as well as many other valuable services free of charge to ECAC.
This year Eaton County Animal Control will be participating in the Annual CAHS Holiday Open House and Adoption Event. This event will be held on Saturday, December 7, 2013 from 11 am to 6 pm at the CAHS Shelter located at 7095 W. Grand River Ave in Lansing just E of the I-96/ Grand River ext.
This event will consist of photos with Santa, special pricing on adoptions, a bake sale, and much more. This year several of the pets up for adoption will be from the ECAC shelter. Also an Eaton County Sheriff’s representative will be present to answer any questions or concerns regarding Animal Control.
We hope to see you there!!
