The Humane Society will have their "Big Mac" mobile adoption center onsite Saturday. Take a few moments to stop by and say “hi” to the dedicated staff and meet their extended family of friends awaiting adoption, perhaps finding a new Life companion while lending support to a wonderful and compassionate organization.
