ARF’s rescued residents will take temporary residence this weekend in the Kia Showroom, 6732 W. Hometown Blvd, Muncie, just west of the intersection of McGalliard and Nebo roads.

This unique two-day event on Dec. 11 and 12, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., is designed to match rescued animals with their forever families in time for Christmas. Kia of Muncie will be taking care of adoption fees for animals from ARF. Applications for rescues are available on line, or by stopping by at the ARF office, 1209 Riggin Road. Prior approval will speed up the adoption process.

“We are so pleased that KIA has offered ARF this amazing opportunity,” said Vickie Bevans, ARF executive director. “We want ARF’s rescues to find their forever families.”

Nearly 100 animals will be available for adoption. The families of those adopted will receive paperwork to take to PetSmart™ for a coupon book for free or reduced cost product. More information is available on this WLBC page.
