Shrewsbury – Sachs Jewelers held a pet adoption day July 26 in collaboration with the Pandora jewelry company and SweetPea Friends of Rutland Animals, a no-kill, nonprofit animal welfare organization. The event allowed customers to meet with pets who are temporarily staying at SweetPea until they find their new “forever” homes.
Three lucky pets were adopted thanks to the event: ?”Kaylee,” a puppy from Kuwait; “Walker,” a Chihuahua poodle mix; and “Mavis,” a 10-week-old kitten.
Kaylee's journey from Kuwait to Massachusetts came courtesy of a couple who was living there for a time. They found Kaylee emaciated and wandering in the desert with temperatures that sometimes went as high as 120 degrees.
When the couple returned to Massachusetts, they found they could not keep Kaylee because she did not get along with the family cats. SweetPea agreed to take her in and shelter her until she could get adopted.
A portion of Sachs” Pandora sales from the event will be donated to SweetPea to support its efforts to fund the care of homeless pets until permanent homes are found.
