big adoption event

For the first time locally, a huge adoption event was scheduled for this past Saturday. Cities all over have been doing this and it seems to help adoptions. Plus it can give great exposure to some groups that may not get it.

Friday night mom and the rescue got access to the center and started setting up. They were taking adoptable cats and dogs and things to sell.

See that white condo/tower? Someone had donated it.....but it wasn't put together. Mom said that she got it together, but that LOTS of HBO werds were put to use.

Kittens galore.....

This is Shamrock. He is a cute medium size boy - and a bobtail. He found his forever home on Saturday.

Our group adopted out 3 kittens and 1 adult. And the family that adopted Shamrock said they may come back to the rescue looking for another cat. Plus there were 2 very good applications for a couple of our dogs.

We aren't sure the total number of adoptions....as of about 4pm on Saturday they announced 70 completed adoptions. However, some groups do home checks, so they will complete that and then submit their final numbers in the next couple of weeks.

Mom said it was a long couple of days. Two hours of set up Friday night after loading the truck, all day Saturday and then unloading the truck on Sunday. But with several adoptions and lots of great exposure, it was worth it. We hope that with this success the groups will be able to do it again. There were about 40 rescues and many vendors there.

  11. while adoptions are always a huge bonus, exposure is also so very very important. I like that they had things for sale, so people who are at a point in life where they can't adopt can still help support the work being done
