Pet rescue adoption day

Safe Haven will have many young dogs available for adoption on Sunday, Jan. 20 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. at Tractor Supply on Route 209, Brodheadsville. A pre-adoption application with references and a home visit prior to adoption are required. Safe Haven Pet Rescue is a small group of dedicated volunteers from the West End of the Poconos who save highly adoptable dogs from high kill and overcrowded shelters and finds them loving homes. Shelter killing is the number one cause of dog deaths and Safe Haven has saved more than 700 lives so far.

They need volunteers to help with adoption days, fundraising, transporting dogs to vets and groomers and fostering homeless dogs until they find their forever homes. For more information, and to find a list of dogs available for adoption and adoption applications, visit org. You may also contact Safe Haven by email at Join Safe Haven Pa on Facebook.

The next volunteer meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 6:30 p.m., at Cherry's Family Restaurant in Kresgeville.

The Young at Heart Seniors meet the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 10 a.m. at the Polk Township Vol. Fire Co. The next meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 15.
