the world. Vendors galore offer cat products, jewelry, food, and artwork.
Come see up to 40 different breeds of cats, including this year's featured
breeds, the Burmese and Maine Coon! Learn about cats and what goes on
at a cat show; special presentations will be held throughout the weekend
explaining judging procedures and features of each breed, as well as choosing
a pet cat or kitten, teaching your cat how to do tricks or take a run
on the agility course, photographing cats, and many other topics. Pet-me
cats will be on hand to purr-sonally promote their breeds and make sure
everyone has a great time! Check our website for presentation times and
Annual Pet Adoption Day on Sunday, September 20th,
The Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital will be holding its Adopt-A-Pet Day
at 320 East Ridgewood Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ. The events have been so successful
in finding homes for pets, so Dr. Dean J. Cerf, Hospital Director, holds
the event twice a year. Dr. Cerf says, "There is nothing like experiencing
the joy of a pet's unconditional love, and we hope to help as many pets
as possible get a second chance to share that love." The hospital
opens its doors and parking lot to over 30 shelters and rescue groups,
who will bring dogs, cats, puppies and kittens for adoption. The entire
staff of the Ridgewood Veterinary Hospital is passionate about this cause
and volunteers hours before and during the event to make it run smoothly.
Last September, over 1000 people attended and more than 250 animals were
placed with loving families. Keith Harris, Hospital Administrator, says,
"Our slogan is Open your heart and home to a friend for life,'
and we invite people to help us adopt more pets at this event than ever
