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 Mega Pet Adoption Event, sponsored by PetSmart Charities, will take place from Friday, Oct. 26, at 11:59 p.m., until Saturday night, Oct. 27, at 11:59 p.m. — without stopping — and will have more than 800 homeless animals eager to find a forever home. The marathon adoption of puppies and kitties will kickoff the festivities at midnight and then continue with the older animals for the rest of the 24-hour event.
Who will you take home?
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 the covered Equestrian Center in Tropical Park, 7900 Bird Rd. in Kendall. This is a family affair with an entire Kid’s Festival, presented by the ASPCA, complete with rides and fun games for children of all ages.
There will be entertainment and refreshments offered by a variety of vendors and performers including Ballet Dance Exchange, Belly Motions Inc., Blood Centers of Florida, Canine Counselors, Carioca Capoeira Miami, DJ Uneeq, Doggie Bag Café Chefs, Dogzy Collars, Alex Murga & Ezpinaz, Game Time, Glamour by J’s, Gourmet Truck Expo, Grove Naturals, Hurricane Jumpers, Ice Cream Time, Live! Modern School of Music, Maria Verdeja School of Arts, Mary Lundberg Art, Natalia Dance Show- Cabaret, PetSmart, Yomo Essentials, and more. Admission to the park is free and complimentary parking is available in the park. “Our goal this year is to find homes for at least 600 deserving cats and dogs,” said Donna Tallon, executive director of the Humane Society of Greater Miami. “With the communities’ help, I am confident that we can do it!”
