Gone Fishin' at HAWS

This week HAWS is featuring some adoptables that are not your usual shelter residents...

Last week HAWS became the home to hundreds of goldfish.  Not our usual adoptable pet, but we've learned that "usual" doesn't really exist here at our shelter!

The day before Thanksgiving, HAWS got a call from the local FedEx office that had "about 250" feeder fish in a box, meant for delivery to an area business.  The address given was deemed "undeliverable" and they were told to destroy the box and its contents.  Animal lovers they are, the FedEx employees decided to call us instead!

The number of fish in the box may have been SLIGHTLY underestimated!  We are now literally stuffed to the gills with fish - with one tank on display in our lobby and another fully stocked in our back room ready to replenish the supply as they are adopted.

Thinking of getting a relatively low-maintenance pet?  NOW is definitely the time! 

We are "adopting" out the fish at a name-your-price deal, and we're happy to give out multiple fish to interested homes.  Kids will need their parents' approval, because we really, really, REALLY don't want returns...

Adopt 4 paws from HAWS?  How about adopting 2 fins and a tail?!
