Hot Paw-gust Nights Car Show Fundraiser and Adoption Event

August 14, 2019

Classic cars and kittens and puppies

The Hayward Animal Shelter will host their annual Hot Paw-gust Nights car show fundraiser and animal adoption event on Sunday, Aug. 25.

All pet adoptions will be free to qualified homes from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. A $17 license fee applies to all dogs adopted to Hayward residents.

In the spirit of the original Hot August Nights, the shelter will showcase an array of classic cars and trucks. There also will be live bands, food, raffles, activities for kids and a special guest appearance by Nate Branch, legendary 15-year veteran of the Harlem Globe trotters.

If you are interested in displaying your car to help support the shelter, email or call (510) 881-7927 by Aug. 20. There is a $25 registration fee. All proceeds benefit the shelter and the spay/neuter fund.
