McKamey Animal Center announces December home for holiday events, including Santa Paws deliveries

McKamey Animal Center is planning a series of events and incentives throughout December designed to give every adoptable animal a home for the holidays.

Throughout the month, adopters will be able to choose a special holiday tree ornament from MAC for a chance to have reduced adoption fees, exclusive discounts, free pet items and even a waiver. 100% of all adoption fees.

For the first time ever, Santa Paws deliveries from MAC will bring smiles this Christmas. Anyone who adopts a pet from MAC between December 17 and December 22 can not only choose a decoration for a chance at free adoption, but they can arrange for MAC’s Christmas elves to deliver their pet adopted right on their doorstep on Christmas Eve or on Christmas. Day. Their new pet will come in holiday “outfit” (dog leashes/collars and cat carrier) and come with a special holiday treat bag.
And for any pets that might still need a home this Christmas, MAC’s Silent Nights Foster Drive hopes to find them new temporary homes where they can spend the holidays. MAC’s team of placement experts will match families with the temporary pet that’s right for them and provide all the supplies needed to keep everyone happy and healthy during the holidays.

For more information, call the MAC Adoption Team at 423-305-6514.

Santa Paws deliveries are only available for adopted pets during regular adoption hours December 17-22 and for an additional $100 delivery fee. Deliveries will take place either between 2pm and 6pm on Christmas Eve or between 8am and 10am on Christmas Day (the number of deliveries and delivery windows are limited so that MAC elves can also spend time at enjoying holidays with their own families). Deliveries are made only within Hamilton County.
