Port Jefferson Station, NY - March 2nd, 2014 - Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. will be holding its fourth annual “St. Pitty’s Day” Party on Sunday, March 16, at the shelter, which is located at 608 Route 112 in Port Jefferson Station from 12:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m.  For a $10 donation, guests will enjoy authentic Irish cuisine and get the opportunity to meet the sweet and playful pit bulls of Save-A-Pet that are all available for adoption!
 
The annual event, which began in 2010, was created to raise awareness and promote adoption for the misunderstood breed. This year, attendees will enjoy a wide array of Irish specialties, including corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, several desserts, and beverages. The lovable pit bulls of Save-A-Pet will be joining guests for the festive activities. Throughout the event, all pit bull adoptions will be free. For the convenience of potential adopters, each pit bull has been spayed, neutered, vaccinated, heartworm tested, and microchipped.
 
Jada, known as the best pit bull in the entire world, is a medium-sized female pit bull terrier that is in need of a loving home after a tragic car accident that damaged her jaw. After surgery, she is now able to eat and drink, but she still has a crooked jaw. Consider adopting sweet Jada to comfort her during her time of need. Lady Rebecca is another gentle pit bull that is seeking a compassionate family. She had been diagnosed with mast cell cancer in the past, from which she almost lost her life. Now, she is cancer-free and is ready to give some lucky family all of her love. Other pit bulls, such as Petey and Darla, are in need of forever homes as well. They are adorable, adult gray-and-white pit bulls that are looking for affectionate, caring families.
 
“We have quite a number of pit bulls here at the shelter,” says Dori Scofield, Founder/President, Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. “It’s a shame because this breed is woefully misunderstood. These are loving, terrific dogs that deserve a forever home and we’re hoping the luck of the Irish helps them find one.”
 
All proceeds will benefit the orphaned animals of the shelter. For more information, please call (631) 473-6333 or visit www.saveapetli.org.
