On May 9, 2009, hundreds of organizations across the state will be participating in the Lone Star Pet Adoptathon Weekend, sponsored by the Texas Animal Shelter Coalition. The weekend adoption event is designed to promote animal organizations as “the place” to adopt dogs and cats. Headlining the weekend will be a huge Adopt A Thon on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, Parking Lot E, at the corner of Ballpark Way & Six Flags Road. More than 35 animal shelters, rescue groups and vendors will have hundreds of adorable, adoptable dogs and cats available for adoption and all in one location.
Please visit this event if you are in the Arlington area! Even if you aren’t ready to adopt, they will have lots of great information available to help you prepare your pet for an emergency, free pet thermometers, paw print purses, stop puppy mill bracelets, games, and coloring books for the kids!
