It’s here again! It’s really big; it’s humongous; it’s colossal; it’s immense. And it’s every animal lover’s fantasy come true. Miami’s 24 HR Mega Match-A-Thon, presented by Subaru, will be a true Midnight Marathon. The event will start at 11:59pm on Friday, October 9th and carry on non-stop, or until all animals are adopted, till 11:59pm on Saturday, October 10th! The Humane Society of Greater Miami, Miami-Dade Animal Services and The Cat Network, together with rescue groups from all over South Florida, will host the event at Tropical Park, located at 7900 Bird Road, in Miami.
Potential adopters will have the opportunity to meet, fall in love with and adopt one or more of dozens of adorable cats, kittens, dogs and puppies at low fees and in a fun and exciting race themed atmosphere. The marathon adoption of puppies and kitties will kick-off the festivities at midnight!
Bring the entire family! There will be a Kid’s Festival and fun games for children of all ages, as well as live entertainment and refreshments by a variety performers and vendors. To make sure that no one goes home hungry, there will be a great selection of food trucks offering a delicious variety of food.
