The Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard recently adopted its 1,000th pet, and is inviting all Islanders to a party at the P.A. Club on Friday, Sept. 28, to celebrate with free food (compliments of Maggie’s Kitchen) and music. From 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm, meet the staff of the animal shelter and learn more about how the organization provides animals with much needed care and loving homes. Learn about clinics, volunteer opportunities, and ways to get involved.
