(Lander, WY) – 1330 KOVE AM / 107.7 FM’s Coffee Time host Vince Tropea recently sat down with Lander Pet Connection (LPC) Interim Executive Director Marta Casey, who filled us in on a number of updates and events at the LPC, including the “Pets for Vets” promotion.
For the entire month of November, Veterans will receive half-off prices on all adoption fees from pets adopted at the LPC.
Any business that wants to sponsor an adoption for a Veteran will also be eligible for the discount this month as well.
“We want to thank and honor all of the Veterans in our communities,” Marta stated.
If you are a Veteran looking to adopt, or a business looking to sponsor an adoption for a Veteran, call the LPC at 307-330-5200, or email at [email protected].
In addition to the “Pets for Vets” promotion, Marta let us know about the LPC’s need for animal field trip volunteers, job opportunities at the LPC, a fundraising raffle going on at Wild Iris Mountain Sports, and the current situation on a special needs cat named Callie who is need of a foster or forever home.
We also got an update on LPC alum Watson, who we recently learned got adopted after an eight month stay at the LPC and is now a career dog working in a K-9 unit, as well as an update on Hot Toddy, a special needs puppy who has made extraordinary improvements with the care he has received.
