Riverside Animal Shelter Grand Opening/Adopt-a-Thon!

May 7, 2010 ·

You are invited to attend the Grand Opening event on Saturday, May 8, 2010 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  With more than 67,000 square feet of structures and kennels on a 12-acre site, the Western Riverside County/City Animal Shelter is now one of the biggest in Southern California.

All dogs that are adopted that day will receive a complimentary grooming before they go home, thanks for Four Paws Inn of Banning.  Everyone will be looking snazzy!  Pass this information on to your family and friends.  Most importantly, there are more than 700 animals ready for adoption into lifelong, loving homes! 

There will be a trolley (from 10 am to 2 pm) to transport people between the Wiener Fest at Fairmount Park and the Western Riverside Animal Shelter Grand Opening at 6851 Van Buren Blvd, Riverside 92503. 

There will also be live entertainment, free BBQ, on-site pet adoptions, face painting and bouncers for the kids, live music, free vendors galore, and Paul Mitchell haircuts by his certified stylists for only $15.00 each (haircuts for people, not the dogs).

Special appearances by:

Kermit Alexander, former NFL 49er
Darrell Thomas, former L.A. Dodger
Armando Muniz, former Professional Boxer
