The event starts at 4 p.m., Tuesday, July 15, at the Library, located at 700 East Palmdale Boulevard.
“Come meet a ‘paws-itively’ perfect dog for you!” said event organizer Janet McLagan. This is the perfect time for these sweet dogs to meet their forever home.”
Halfway to Home Dog Rescue is a nonprofit group that has saved over 3900 animals since its founding. They can be found every weekend at PetSmart at 39523 10th Street West in Palmdale from 1 to 5 pm. Their mission is to rescue, provide needed shots and medical attention, a safe temporary home with shelter, food and water, spay/neuter and finally adopt out to a loving “Forever Home.”
Halfway to Home also promotes responsible pet ownership through its policies and education process, which in turn encourages pet parents to know that spaying and neutering is the right thing to do.
The Library’s Summer Reading Program is hosting several animal-themed events over the course of the summer to encourage kids to keep up their reading skills. Sign ups for the program begin at 10 am and the program starts at 1 pm. The Summer Reading Program is free and open to all kids up to age 12.
In addition, the Palmdale City Library is hosting a Teen Summer Reading Program, in which teens can earn tickets for a chance to win awesome raffle prizes just by reading.
The programs will be held through Aug. 2.
“Last year over 900 kids signed up for the Summer Reading Program,” Vose said. “This year we hope to break one thousand, and we know this community of readers will make that happen!”
This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Palmdale City Library, and by a grant from the Dollar General Foundation.
