Local 'Bark Party' features 5-cent adoption fees

Posted: Updated:

You've heard of a block party. Now, how about a “bark” party?

It's a great chance to adopt a dog or cat, because during this event, adoption fees are only a nickel for some animals!

The state's oldest and largest no-kill shelter is hosting the Local Bark Party on Friday, May 8, During the event, guests are encouraged to "shop local, adopt local, support local."

The Local Bark Party, is a one-of-a-kind, vintage-themed block party hosted by the Arizona Animal Welfare League & SPCA in partnership with Local First Arizona. The event will feature live music from local artists, games, kids' activities, food trucks and more.

As part of this family-friendly event, AAWL & SPCA is offering throwback pricing on special pets, which will be available for a 5-cent adoption fee. These select animals are older or have been at the shelter for awhile, and are looking for their perfect match.

Guests attending the Local Bark Party can also shop local vendors, get advice at an "Ask the Vet" booth, and learn about exotic animals from the shelter's education team.

When: Fri., May 8, 6 - 10 p.m.

Where: AAWL & SPCA, 25 N. 40th St., Phoenix (just north of Washington Street)

Cost: FREE
