We Care for Animals is holding a pet adoption event at the old library located at 150 N. Yucca St., #1 on Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon.

All pets adopted through WCFA are vet checked, up to date on all vaccines, spayed/neutered (or will be when old enough) and ready for their new home.

Register now for Muttigans – WCFA’s Charity Golf Tournament Oct 21. Go to Muttigans.com to register or sponsor.

WCFA is also looking for donations of Christmas ball ornaments that they will use to create Christmas ball wreaths to sell and raise money to support the homeless cats and dogs in their foster care program. They need large and small ornaments.

Ornaments can be dropped off during the adoption event on Saturday or call 702-346-3326, they will gladly arrange to come pick them up.

Don’t breed or buy, adopt and give a wonderful fur friend a forever home. You can contact WCFA at www.wecareforanimals.org for an online application.

Mayhem in Mesquite begins this weekend with the Mayhem Pool party hosted by DJ Juan. Join the fun with the pizza eating contest and the ring girl meet and greet then check into the tent at 6 p.m. when they’ll be weighing in the fighters.

Don’t wear yourself out with all pre-fight fun. Hold onto your energy because the fights begin on Saturday at 7 p.m. with all the future stars of MMA and you won’t want to miss the after party with the Saints of Las Vegas; the concert is free.
