Suffolk, Virginia-October 10, 1917 - It's the time of year when we give thanks for all our blessings, and for many people, those blessings include our furry best friends. There are so many wonderful pets who hope that you might want to add them to your list of blessings at one of the October, November and December adopt-a-thons sponsored by the Suffolk Humane Society and Suffolk Animal Care Center. The Petsmart Charities Adoption Center at the Chesapeake Square Petsmart store, 4300 Portsmouth Blvd., Chesapeake, VA 23321 will host an adopt-a-thon on Oct. 14th, Nov. 11th and Dec. 9th, and the Petsmart Charities Adoption Center at the North Suffolk Petsmart store 6243 College Drive, Suffolk VA 23435 will host events on Oct. 15th, Nov. 12th and Dec. 10th.  All events will be held from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

"There are just so many wonderful pets available," said Lee Murphy, director of adoptions and fosters for Suffolk Humane Society.  "We hope people will come out, see them and maybe take one home.  We feel sure it will not only be a blessing for the pet, but for the adopter as well."
