COLORADO SPRINGS — If you've been looking to add a furry companion to your family, there's an adoption fair happening at New Hope Rescue (2502 E Bijou St) in Colorado Springs, and the best part is you'd be helping a loving rescue animal get a second chance at life.
On Saturday, 40 dogs and 30 cats will be put up for adoption at New Hope Rescue, a nonprofit that rescues animals from high-kill shelters.
These animals come from a variety of backgrounds. Some of these animals have spent some time in foster care to socialize them, and they all look very different from one another, but they all have something in common: They've been given a second chance at life, and now all they need is a forever home.
"Some are silly, some are a little more serious, but they're all cuddly and lovable and they're all looking for someone to be with," said Amber-joy Tacey, the volunteer social media manager at New Hope Rescue.
The adoption fair kicks off on Saturday at 1 p.m. and ends at 5 p.m.
You can stop by in-person and check out the animals, or even browse their profiles online. Adoption fees can vary depending on medical needs. So they can range from $30 - $400 depending on the animal.
But all animals adopted out are already fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed.
Once you find your companion and want to move forward with the adoption, all you have to do is fill out an application online. You can find links to that and animal profiles on New Hope's website: newhoperescueinc.com
Once you submit an application, you just have to wait for it to be reviewed and approved.
