It’s a pu­palooza week­end. The SPCA an­i­mal cen­tre in Sud­bury is mak­ing 10 pups from the same lit­ter avail­able for adop­tion to­mor­row.

Eight of the cuties, who just got fixed this week, are sched­uled to au­di­tion for a new home at the PetS­mart on Mar­cus Drive, in the Sil­ver Hills com­plex, on Sat­ur­day.

The other two, both fe­males, will be of­fered through the SPCA on a foster-to-adopt ba­sis un­til such time as they are spayed.

The 10 husky-shep­herd babes ar­rived on Oct. 19 with their mother as part of a de­liv­ery from re­mote North­ern com­mu­ni­ties. Five other pups from a dif­fer­ent lit­ter were also in care at the SPCA but all found homes ear­lier this week.

“Over 30 an­i­mals came in on the last trans­fer and we kept 15 dogs al­to­gether here, so it’s been a busy few weeks around here,” said SPCA man­ager Jen Hughes.

The pups are be­ing of­fered to tak­ers as part of a Na­tional Adop­tion Week­end through PetS­mart stores.

The adop­tion blitzes are held four times per year by PetS­mart Char­i­ties, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with an­i­mal wel­fare or­ga­ni­za­tions like the SPCA.

“When you at­tend, you’ll find dogs, pup­pies, cats, kit­tens and small pets all in need of a life­long, lov­ing home,” ac­cord­ing to the PetS­mart web­site.

“The amaz­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions we work with en­sure each pet is spayed and neutered prior to adop­tion, giv­ing you added peace of mind as you search for your new best friend.”
