Students to Share an Afternoon with Animals

University Counseling Services is teaming up with the Adair County Humane Society to give students a break from end-of-the-year stresses.

UCS invites students to interact with animals from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., May 6, on the Quadrangle. Cats and dogs from the Humane Society will be up for adoption.

The dual purpose of the afternoon with animals is to provide students with a reprieve from studying and finals pressure, as well as to promote the adoption of homeless animals.

The Humane Society allows anyone 18 or older to adopt animals from the shelter. They now have a pre-application for many of their animals. Please be prepared for a 48 hour wait for them to check references. Cats and kittens are available for a $35 adoption fee. Puppies start at $55 for purchase. They now spay and neuter all of the animals over six months of age before they can be adopted.

The animal shelter is located a few miles west of Wal-Mart on the right-hand side of Highway 6 in Kirksville.
