A non-stop 24 hour adoptathon with more than 800 homeless animals will start at midnight October 26 and end midnight on October 27
Itâ€™s really big; itâ€™s humongous; itâ€™s colossal; itâ€™s immense. And itâ€™s every animal loverâ€™s fantasy come true. Miamiâ€™s Mega Pet Adoption Event, sponsored by PetSmart Charities, will be held from Friday night, October 26, at 11:59, until Saturday night, October 27 at 11:59pmâ€”without stoppingâ€” and will have more than 800 homeless animals eager to find a forever home. The marathon adoption of puppies and kitties will kick-off the festivities at midnight and then continue with the older animals for the rest of the 24 hour-long event. (Who will you take home?)
The Humane Society of Greater Miami, Miami-Dade Animal Services, and The Cat Network, together with rescue groups from all over South Florida, will host the event at the covered Equestrian Center in Tropical Park, 7900 Bird Road in Miami. This is a family affair with an entire Kidâ€™s Festival, presented by the ASPCA, complete with rides, and fun games for children of all ages.
There will be entertainment and refreshments by a variety of vendors and performers including Ballet Dance Exchange, Belly Motions, Inc., Blood Centers of Florida, Canine Counselors, Carioca Capoeira Miami, D.J. Uneeq, Doggie Bag CafÃ© Chefs, Dogzy Collars, Alex Murga & Ezpinaz, Game Time, Glamour by Jâ€™s, Gourmet Truck Expo, Grove Naturals, Hurricane Jumpers, Ice Cream Time, Live! Modern School of Music, Maria Verdeja School of Arts, Mary Lundberg Art, Natalia Dance Show-Cabaret, PetSmart, Yomo Essentials, and more. Admission to the park is free and complimentary parking is available in the park.
â€œOur goal this year is to find homes for at least 600 deserving cats and dogs,â€ says Donna Tallon, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Greater Miami. â€œWith the communitiesâ€™ help, I am confident that we can do it!â€
