BENTONVILLE, Ark. (KNWA / KFTA) – People got a chance to add a new furry friend to their families on Saturday in Bentonville.
The Best Friends Animal Society hosted the “Kitten and Puppy Palooza” at the Bentonville Brewing Company today.
The shelter says there has been a baby boom in northwest Arkansas and the community is overflowing with adorable puppies and kittens ready to make their homes forever.
Best Friends’ Ali Sigrist says the pandemic contributed to this flood of baby animals.
“We had a time when many places couldn’t do any surgery other than life-saving surgery, so we couldn’t spay and neuter multiple places around this time last year, and I think that definitely caught up with us. “, Said Sigrist.
Whiskers Rescue, Tailwaggers NWA, and Big Paws of the Ozarks also brought adoptable pets.
Adoption fees started at $ 100 and included vaccination, neutering and neutering, and a microchip.
