Dear Adoption Advocate,
 
(If you are receiving this email and you are not an adoption group it is because you are known to have some sort of affiliation with a group that I may not have a good contact for and I'm hoping you'll help Hero's Pets out and forward this email to any adoption contacts you may have to get as many homeless pets a new home as possible.  Thank you so much for your help)
 
Hero's P.e.t.s. (Planetary & Ecologically Trusted Supplies) is now scheduling adoption days for spring, summer and fall. 

If you have not done an adoption event at our store before please feel free to visit the website at www.herospets.com and click on "See Our Store" in the upper right hand corner.  We have two loveseat couches in the store where you can relax while you enjoy beverages and meet the customers (prospective parents) and we have lots of space to sit outside by the lake if it is a nice day for being outside.
 
Our store backs up to Clement Park (www.ifoothills.com), which has a 1.4 mile, heavily trafficked, walking trail that goes right behind the store, full of good doggy parents.  One form of our advertising for your adoption event is drawing chalk paw prints from the trail into the store with a sign that says "(Your Breed) Adoptions TODAY!!!"
 
It is NOT necessary for you to bring dogs that are available for adoption to the event.  While we do recommend that you bring at least one we have had many successful adoption days here where rescue groups bring their own pets and a book of available pets and simply talk to customers about who is available and about their breed.  We understand that it is stressful for the animals to attend events sometimes though, and that it is difficult to coordinate volunteers.  However, we have had several rescue groups have very successful days with only one person and a book of pictures and stories of who is for adoption.

Please let me know if you are interested in holding an adoption day here.  In addition to the walking traffic, we also have heavy drive by traffic and adoption events are generally very successful here.  We are on the same corner as Barnes & Noble, opposite a movie theatre and Southwest Plaza Mall, Starbucks, as well as many other businesses.  We do recommend that the event be on a Saturday or Sunday (See store hours below) as those are the days with the heaviest walking traffic around the lake.

We will advertise your adoption event at no fee to you.
Hero's Pets won the Planet Dog 2008 Adoption Champion Award and is currently receiving a lot of support to continue our efforts in adoption and would love if you and your group could participate.
Hero's Pets also offers a 10% discount on purchases made by anyone with your rescue group made on the day of the adoption event, as well as 30% off select beds purchased for the rescue.  Many of the companies carried at Hero's Pets also donate towards adoption and service dog groups when their products are purchased as well.
 
If you would like to coordinate your adoption day event with another Hero's Pets event to increase exposure here is a list of other things that Hero's Pets has going on right now:
-Every Saturday from 10am-3pm- Certified Canine Massage Therapist Jodi Loomis available for massage
-Every Sunday from 12pm-2pm- Groomer Kelly Dutton available for $10 nail trimmings
-3rd Monday of every month- Denver Dumb Friends League's Lulu Mobile available for $50 spay/neuters for dogs only.
-February 4th (more dates to be scheduled)- Denver Dumb Friends League's Meow Mobile available for $25 spay/neuters for cats only.
-April 24th- Anesthesia Free Teeth Cleanings for Dogs and Cats as well as Certified Doggy Chiropracter Andi Harper available.
Please check up on our website www.herospets.com under "Events" to keep posted about additional booked dates.

Please let me know as soon as possible so I can begin advertising.
Thank you so much,
Chelsea
