If you’re looking for a new companion, this is the weekend to find one as the City of Fort Worth Animal Shelter is partnering with the Humane Society of North Texas to host the second Mega Adoption Event.

This past December, more than 800 shelter pets were adopted at the inaugural event.

As many as 700 pets, including dogs, cats, small fuzzy critters and livestock – even baby pigs – will be awaiting adoption at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, in Cattle Barn #1, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Admission is free.

Humane Society of North Texas Director of Communications Cassie Lackey said the event is for the entire family. And, as everyone knows, kids love animals.

“Can you imagine having hundreds and hundreds of dogs and cats in one location? It’s a pet lover’s dream,” Lackey said. “Our goal is to have these pets find their perfect families, as they certainly deserve a second chance.”

The adoption fee is $10. All the pets have been spayed/neutered, received rabies/core vaccinations, microchipping, medical exam and 30-day pet insurance.

The Mega Adoption Event is made possible by the Petco Foundation and BOBS from Sketchers.

Fort Worth Assistant Director of Code Compliance said the shelter has been at or over capacity for months. Thus, the need for a second such event in less than a year.

“These past few months have been quite a challenge,” Morton said. “If this event is supported by our community as it was in December, we’ll be thrilled to know the pets are where they should be — in homes of loving families.”

Also, more than 20 trucks and trailers will be transporting nearly 500 pets to the Will Rogers Memorial Center, Cattle Barn #1 on Friday, starting at 1:30 p.m. The Fort Worth Police Department will provide a motorcycle escort.

The caravan leaves from the Humane Society of North Texas, 1840 E Lancaster Ave. in Fort Worth. The caravan will arrive at Will Rogers on Tandy Burnett Drive.
