    SOUTHAVEN, Miss., April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Ever
 want to see your local mayor in the doghouse, literally?  Those interested
 will have that opportunity this Saturday, April 21, 2001, from 11 a.m. to
 3 p.m. at the Southaven, MS, PETCO store.
     Anyone interested in helping "Spring-A-Mayor" from doghouse duty can make
 a donation.  All proceeds will benefit the Olive Branch Humane Society and the
 Desoto Animal Rescue Society.
     The following mayors encourage their constituents to help in this cause:
 
     -- Olive Branch Mayor Rikard from 11 a.m. to noon
     -- Horn Lake Mayor Thomas from noon to 1 p.m.
     -- Southaven Mayor Davis from 1 to 2 p.m.
     -- Hernando Mayor Gale from 2 to 3 p.m.
 
     "We just concluded our annual 'Spring-A-Pet' fundraiser for PETCO's
 non-profit charity, the PETCO Foundation, and dreamed up this fun way to make
 even more money for local humane groups," said Southaven PETCO Store Manager
 Ronnie Dowty.  He and his assistant, Nora Heidt, developed the program with
 the local mayors.
      The nationwide "Spring-A-Pet" campaign raised nearly $1 million and
 proceeds from that fundraiser will go to more than 500 local animal welfare
 groups.
      This weekend is the Fourth Annual National Pet Adoption Campaign in PETCO
 stores and the "Spring-A-Mayor" event is one example of how PETCO stores
 create fun ways to raise money for animal shelters and call attention to
 animals for adoption.
      In addition to the fundraiser in the Southaven store, the Desoto Animal
 Rescue Society will have companion animals available for adoption at the store
 on Saturday.  And on Sunday the Olive Branch Humane Society will be at the
 stores with adoptable animals.
     For additional information contact Ronnie Dowty or Nora Heidt at the
 Southaven PETCO, 205 Goodman Road.  (662) 349-7460.
