For the second time in less than a year, almost 1,000 animals found a new home, thanks to the Fort Worth Animal Shelter and the Humane Society of North Texas as the two combined to hold their second Mega-Adoption event.

Saturday’s event at the Will Rogers Complex saw 968 animals get adopted, including 610 from the Human Society of North Texas and 358 from the Fort Worth Animal Shelter. The animals ranged from cats and dogs to rabbits, guinea pigs, regular pigs, mice, rats, gerbils, and even a lizard (gecko).

“We couldn’t have hosted this event without the support of our community, who showed up in a big way ready to adopt and save lives,” said Cassie Lackey, Director of Communications for the Humane Society of North Texas. “The Petco Foundation and BOBS from Skechers supported all adoption fees. We’re eternally grateful.”

This came on the heels of the first Mega-Adoption event in December, at which over 800 animals were adopted.

“Our community showed up in a big way,” Lackey said.
