MUNSTER | Humane Society Calumet Area will host an adoption event Saturday with adoption fees waived for doctors, nurses and health care staffers as part of the 2014 ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge.

The adoption event takes place from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the shelter, 421 45th St. During the event, Community Hospital nurses will offer free blood pressure screenings.

All adoptions require an approved application and all standard adoption procedures apply. The animal does not have to go home at time of application, but an application must be submitted the day of the event. Puppies and kittens are excluded, and additional fees—including a $25 rabies vaccination fee—may apply.

Other adoption events take place July 5, with adoption fees waived for military personnel, veterans and their families, and July 12, with adoption fees waived for firefighters and their families.

The ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge is a nationwide competition for animal shelters aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their owners than ever before. As a contestant in the challenge, HSCA is competing for a chance at more than $600,000 in grant funding, including a grand prize of $100,000.

For the challenge, HSCA chose the theme “Rescue Me.” Throughout the summer at the shelter, HSCA will offer Save Me Saturdays with reduced adoption fees for a special group during each event.

Three times during the summer, the shelter will host Empty the Shelter weekends—July 19-20, Aug. 9-10 and Aug. 30-31—with adoption fees waived for all qualifying applications.
