announce an extraordinary initiative in partnership with the Gately Family Foundation that

promises to bring immense joy and happiness to both pets and potential adopters during the

holiday season.

For the entire month of December, all adoptions at Pet Network will be graciously sponsored by

the Gately Family Foundation. This generous sponsorship means that there will be NO

adoption fees for any of the animals looking for their new homes. Additionally, as part of this

incredible gesture, the Gately Family Foundation is providing a Peace of Mind voucher for

veterinary care at Pet Network Community Hospital, ensuring the well-being and health of

the adopted animals.

“This sponsorship from the Gately Family Foundation is a game-changer for us and for the

animals in our care,” says Katie Millonzi,Director of Operations at Pet Network. “Their generosity

allows us to facilitate adoptions without the financial barrier, enabling more families to open their

hearts and homes.”

This heartwarming initiative is an invitation for the community to join in the celebration of this

benevolent sponsorship by finding the perfect furry companion. From playful pups to cuddly

kittens and mature pets seeking loving families, there’s a wide array of animals waiting to be

adopted into warm, safe, and loving homes.

“This is an incredible opportunity for those looking to enrich their lives by bringing a pet into their

home,” remarks Simi Balter, Executive Director. “By adopting from Pet Network this December,

you’re not just giving a home to an animal in need; you’re also becoming a part of a wonderful

journey filled with companionship and unconditional love. I am so grateful for the generosity of

the Gately Family Foundation because they allow us to further our mission. “
