More places to adopt pets

To the editor:

The June 1 issue of the Dakota County Tribune had a front page article on “Farmington animal shelter is in Top 20.” It was a nice well written article, but I would like to provide some additional information that is important to the operation of Last Hope animal rescue of Farmington.

Proper credit was given to Petco stores in Apple Valley and Burnsville for hosting pet adoptions for Last Hope. Another important outlet for our animal adoptions is the new Petsmart store in northeast Lakeville at Pilot Knob Road and 160th Street adjacent to the Hy-Vee Store. We have pet adoptions from that Petsmart store every Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This Petsmart also keeps several cats for adoption in their store at all times.

Another place to adopt a Last Hope cat is at Fluegel’s Farm, Garden and Pet on Highway 3 in downtown Rosemount. They keep several of our cats at their store at all times for adoption. Fluegel’s personnel provide housing, food, water for these cats kept in their store and keep their living quarters clean and complete all of the necessary paperwork to complete adoption of one of these cats.

I thank Petsmart, Petco and Fluegel’s for serving as adoption outlets for our cats and dogs. We could not be successful without them.
