A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter is hosting its annual HOLIDAY COOKIE WALK & MORE, on Saturday, December  7th 9:00 am-1:00 pm at Naperville’s Fifth Avenue Station,200 E. Fifth Avenue. Last year’s walk was a huge success with plenty of fantastic home-made cookies and candies, and this year it promises to be even better!  Check out A.D.O.P.T's event recap page for photos from last year's great event (click here).  Once again this year the walk will be held in the lobby of Fifth Avenue Station (home to our annual “Makin’ Strides for Strays” Walk!).

We will also have a variety of cookies prepackaged for those who need to get in and out quickly. 100% of the proceeds from this fundraiser will help to make the holidays happier for the homeless animals of A.D.O.P.T.
