Expect to have a lot of fun, and to meet dozens of adorable, adoptable cats and dogs. Each participating rescue group and shelter at the event has its own adoption application, interview process and adoption fee structure. Adoption fees help cover costs such as spay/neuter, vaccinations and other medical needs. Please note that all participating shelters and our participating rescue groups offer same-day adoptions. Potential adopters should come prepared with a valid form of identification and payment. If you’re a renter, it’s a good idea to have a letter from your landlord stating that you are allowed to have a pet. We welcome well behaved and socialized dogs on fixed leashes and under adult control. Meet-and-greet-areas will be staffed by volunteers and specialists who can help with introductions.
