ACSPCA Teams Up With PetSmart Charities For Adoption Event

If you’ve been thinking of adopting a new four-legged family member, consider doing so at the PetSmart Charities National Adoption Event, taking place Saturday, November 12 at PetSmart (1760 Apple Glen Blvd. Fort Wayne, IN) in the Apple Glen Shopping Center located in southwest Fort Wayne.

The stars of the event will be twenty adoptable kittens, all looking for their forever homes, as well as numerous adoptable dogs and adult cats. The shelter at 4914 S. Hanna Street will be closed as staff and volunteers take part in the adoption event.

As always, the Allen County SPCA will be offering same-day adoptions for families who are fully prepared to add a pet to their homes. “We encourage people to come out to PetSmart this weekend, meet with the dogs and cats, and take their animal home the same day,” said executive director, Jessica Henry. All animals will be adopted on a first come, first served basis, but priority will be given to pre-approved adopters. Anyone interested in adopting this weekend can find the application on the shelter’s website. “We are grateful to PetSmart Charities for their commitment to pet adoption. They have been a wonderful partner for our shelter, and we appreciate the opportunity to participate in this big, national effort.”

Event hours: noon until 4p.m.
Pet adoptions will benefit the Allen County SPCA through the generosity of PetSmart Charities.
