Animal Welfare Council/Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic will hold an open house on December 4 | Community

WOODLAND – The Animal Welfare Council/Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic will hold its annual open house on Sunday, December 4.

The event will be open to the public from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 1380 Shawville Hwy. in Woodlands. There will be tours of the Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic, door prizes and light refreshments. Don’t forget to stop by with your pet for free photos with Santa from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

In conjunction with the open house, the Animal Welfare Council would like to announce the soft launch of its fundraising campaign. The council is in a position where it cannot meet the needs of local and surrounding clients, shelters and relief organizations. The non-profit AWC is diligently trying to recruit more veterinarians to meet demand. A new building or expansion of the current facility is long overdue. More details to come.

What better way to open the fundraising campaign than a “vacation home tour?” The AWC has partnered with community residents who will share their historic homes and holiday traditions. Plus, there will be a surprise tour stop with a gift. The event will take place on Sunday, December 4 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Tickets are $25 per person and are available at the Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic location. The first stop on the tour will be the Allegheny Spay & Neuter Clinic Open Day to pick up a map to begin the vacation home tour.

The Animal Welfare Council will provide slippers to wear in each household. Only the ground floor units will be open for visits and no photos will be allowed. Participants must show their ticket to the owner to enter.
