No More Homeless Pets Adopt-a-thon

DC Metro No More Homeless Pets will host its second major adoption event to find homes for homeless companion animals in and around the nation's capital. The adopt-a-thon will be on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Fairfax Corner Shopping Center, Monument Drive and Government Center Parkway, Fairfax.

Representatives from more than 26 area animal shelters and rescue organizations hope to match individuals and families with loving companion animals in need of forever homes. Each year more than five million healthy, adoptable animals are euthanized because homes are not found. Last year, 2,500 people attended the one-day adoption event and 100 animals found forever homes. The event is sponsored by Fairfax Corner, Fur-Get Me Not, Canine Caterers, Noah's Ark and Affectionate Pet Care.

DC Metro No More Homeless Pets is a coalition of individuals, animal shelters and rescue organizations in the metropolitan area that work collaboratively to promote proactive policies and host events benefiting homeless companion animals.
