Animal F.A.I.R. is hosting an adoption event on Saturday, January 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Sedalia at the Tractor Supply Company. Animal FAIR is a group of dedicated volunteers rescuing cats and dogs from abuse, abandonment, neglect, illness and more.They are a non-profit, no kill animal rescue based in Sedalia, Missouri.

They realize the local city shelter does all it can, but sometimes they have to euthanize. Animal FAIR wants to help pick up the slack and stop that before it starts. The rescues are placed in foster homes, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, ensured physical and emotional health, good socialization, and then adopted into carefully screened homes. They also educate the community on responsible pet ownership and encourage spay/neuter to prevent pet overpopulation. They're having a couple of adoption events this month, where you can meet some of the animals yourself.

I got to talk with Celeste Filis* about the group and also about the adoption event, and the ways you can help.

Make sure to attend the event this weekend at the Tractor Supply Company. Find out more by following them on Facebook or visit their blog.

You can help animal FAIR by contributing your time, talents, or money. They need foster homes for cats or dogs, and volunteers to help with data entry, website updates, equipment tracking, and driving animals to vet appointments. Volunteers who can help at our adoption events are also welcome.

To volunteer, fill out this form or send an email to and let 'em know how you would like to help.

Fairly yours,

*Yes, that's Kaleb's Mom
