Marquette, MI  –  December 5, 2017  –  On Thursday, December 7th, the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter is throwing their annual Holiday Open House Party! Swing by the shelter from 12-6:30pm to join in the holiday fun and celebrate another year of keeping the doors open at UPAWS, plus the new structure going up in Marquette. The open house will also be a way to thank UPAWS’ volunteers, donors, and adopters for their support throughout the 2017 year.

When you drop in, bring along an item from the UPAWS Wish List. Enjoy some tasty refreshments and maybe receive a little love from an animal or two.  This is also a great time to meet some of the animals up for adoption before the UPAWS & Subaru “Share the Love” Free Adoption Event on December 13th!
