Polkas for Pets Sunday in Lehighton

Published June 18. 2011 09:01AM

Even though it's a polka music, don't be surprised if you hear a little of "Hound Dog" or "Cat's In the Cradle."

Anything goes when it comes to trying to pair pets and people, Sunday, when the fourth annual Polkas for Pets is held at the Lehighton Community Grove.

The free event will begin at noon, with the Pennsylvania Villagers polka band playing from 2-5 p.m.

Tom Zimmerman IV, coordinator, said the purpose of Polkas for Pets is "bringing together pets of many kinds who need homes."

The Lehighton Lioness Club and the Carbon County Friends of Animals will be selling food.

Several animal adoption agencies will be present and bring with them a variety of potential pets.

The Carbon County Friends of Animals appears every year at Polkas for Pets.

Safe Haven Pet Rescue is one of the animal rescue groups bringing dogs with them.

Spay and neuter applications will be available.

Zimmerman said the event will be held rain or shine.

He added that it isn't mandatory that you adopt a pet to enjoy the Pennsylvania Villagers' polka tunes.
