“Cogs for Dogs” Adoption Day will be held Saturday at OC Animal Care in Orange, with pets available for adoption for the reduced fee of $7, thanks in part to a donation by Anaheim Ducks forward Andrew Cogliano.

The event will be held from 11 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at OC Animal Care, 561 The City Drive South, and will include appearances by the Power Players and Ducks Street team. Cogliano is scheduled to appear form 12:30-2 p.m., a time subject to change, a team official said.

The $7 adoption fee includes a free spay/neuter, microchipping, flea treatment, deworming, vaccines and feline testing. The special rate is in honor of Cogliano’s jersey number, 7, and is also made possible by a donation by OC Animal Care.

Adopters of the first 100 pets will receive an autographed picture of Cogliano and a Ducks bandana for the pet.

Cogliano has created “Cogs for Dogs,” a program dedicated to raising awareness for the need for animal adoption and rescue at OC Animal Care, a county government-funded animal shelter.

The Ducks will hold OC Animal Care Night at Sunday’s game against the Calgary Flames at Honda Center, seeking to raise awareness for OC Animal Care.

Fans are asked to donate pet food, toys and new or gently used towels and blankets for use at OC Animal Care. The donations can be brought to the shelter’s informational booth at The Hockey Spot from 2-4 p.m.

Dogs that will be available for adoption Monday will be at The Hockey Spot.

The Team Store will feature Ducks merchandise for pets and “Cogs for Dogs” apparel. All fans making “Cogs for Dogs” apparel and headwear purchases Sunday will receive a “Cogs for Dogs” picture autographed by Cogliano.

The Anaheim Ducks Foundation will hold a drawing for autographed canvases featuring Ducks players with dogs. Tickets for the drawing can be purchased at The Hockey Spot from 2-4 p.m. and in Section 212 once the game begins.

Sunday’s silent auction proceeds will benefit OC Animal Care.
