Adopt-A-Dog is hosting an adoption event on Saturday, May 30 from 12:00 noon to 3:00pm at their facility just over the town line in Armonk, NY.

Readers may recall the Greenwich Free Press feature from two weeks ago about a group of 24 male dogs from Alabama dogs that arrived at Northwind Kennels in Bedford via Tennessee. All of the dogs underwent a new non-surgical sterilization process before they arrived. The dogs were all “Zeutered” which is a play on words for Zeuterin, a concentration of Zinc Gluconate neutralized with Arginine. The result is a safe, fast non-surgical method of castration for male dogs. Zeuterin eliminates the risks associated with surgical castration and allows veterinarians to combat the problem of pet overpopulation in a safe, humane, and manageable way.  No incisions and no general anesthesia means the procedure is safe and fast.

According to Franchesca Biondo who is a volunteer with both Adopt-A-Dog and ARK Charities, the method is ideal for mass sterilizing events, where a large number of dogs receive the procedure and walk away bright and alert.

Several of the Zeutered dogs will be at the adoption event, so come to the adoption day and meet a range of fantastic dogs.

Also, meet dogs like Opie who will have finished up his treatment for heart worm, poor boy and be ready for adoption on May 30. He is a super sweet Lab mix.

Plan ahead as dog adoption is not an impulse decision. Fill out a one-page online application in advance.

Adopt-A-Dog is located at 23 Cox Ave in Armonk, NY, just up the way from Greenwich Audubon at the top of Riversville Rd.
