12/11: Geauga County APL's Rescue Village



Don’t forget the animals this holiday season! The Geauga County APL’s Rescue Village (15463 Chillicothe Rd., Russell Township, 440.338.4819) is inviting one and all to its Peace & Paws Holiday Celebration and Adoptathon, kicking off from 6-8 tonight with a candle-lighting and blessing of the animals in its Krantz Celebration Garden. It will be accompanied by holiday music, cider, cocoa and desserts. A holiday flea-less market runs from noon-8 p.m. today and noon-5 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday, when visitors can shop for animal-related gifts, have photos taken with Santa Paws and check out all the pets waiting for homes. If you know someone who’s looking for a new pet, get them a gift certificate to come in and meet the animals after the holidays. If they love animals but can’t have one, the Rescue Village offers cage sponsorships: for a certain amount, they’ll send your friend a different animal’s picture and story each month. It’s free. — Anastasia Pantsios
