More than 10 local animal-rescue organizations will participate

For the next six months, the Short North Gallery Hop will be a little more playful.

A pet adoption fair will be held for the next six consecutive Gallery Hops at the Columbus First Free Will Baptist Church, beginning May 4. Swing by the church, which is located at 49 E. Third Ave. (one block east of High Street), from 4-9 p.m. to find a loveable addition to the family.

More than 10 local animal-rescue organizations, each with their own animal specialties, will participate. If a furry friend is for you, Zoom Room, a Short North puppy-training business, will offer a 15 percent discount on classes to anyone who adopts at the fair.
