The Feliciana Animal Welfare Society will join with Northside Humane Society for the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Event on Nov. 14-16.

Both rescue groups will feature a full lineup of friendly dogs, cats, puppies and kittens awaiting adoption, FAWS volunteer Gail Dellafiora said.

Adoptions are from noon to 4 p.m. Nov. 14, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 15 and noon to 4 p.m. Nov. 16 at PetSmart, 8660 Airline Highway, in Baton Rouge.

Anyone looking for a pet should plan to attend to meet the fostered sweethearts on site, Dellafiora said.

Pets up for adoption are current on their routine vaccinations, spayed/neutered and ready to go home.
