Matches were made, and homes were found on Saturday, July 18 at Jack London Square in Oakland during the East Bay SPCA’s annual Adopt-a-thon event.
Thanks to presenting sponsor Pet Food Express and sponsors Lungomare and Downtown Subaru, the event was free for 31 participating shelters and rescues. By the end of the day, 81 animals had found their forever homes!
Media sponsors like DogTrekker made sure the word was out and more than 4300 attendees browsed the selection of dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits, doves, pigeons and rats.
Sunny skies, cool breezes and legions of pet lovers made the event one of the best in many years.
