It’s time once again for the Mega Adoption Event as the Fort Worth Animal Shelter is again partnering with the Humane Society of North Texas to host the largest shelter pet adoption event in Fort Worth.

The event, made possible by a grant from the Petco Foundation, will feature more than 500 pets waiting to be taken to a new home. The loveable and cuddly animals will include dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters and other soft and fuzzy pets, and they’ll all be under one roof at the Will Rogers Coliseum, Cattle Barn 1, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Admission is free. The adoption fee for all pets is $10.

All the adoptable pets have been spayed/neutered, received rabies and core vaccinations (age appropriate), microchipping, a free initial vet visit (with a participating local vet) and 30-day pet insurance.

“This weekend is our third MEGA Adoption Event- and hopefully not our last,” said Cassie Lackey, Director of Communications for the Human Society of North Texas. “We are aiming to adopt a minimum of 500 pets, with the hopes of emptying our shelters by adopting hundreds more – which could be close to 1,000 pets.”

The Mega Adoption Event has been hosted twice – December 2018 and June 2019, where a total of 1,829 shelter pets were adopted.

“We wouldn’t be able to save hundreds of lives without the support of the Petco Foundation and BOBS from Skechers,” Lackey said. “Truly, they have made this event possible.

“We’d like to remind potential adopters that rescue works both ways. Adopt a pet, save their life, they’ll save yours. Pets bring so much love and devotion into our homes. We are thrilled to be able to find homes for hundreds of deserving pets before the holidays.”
