The Black Friday adoption event at the Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control in Fort Wayne, Indiana promoting “Don’t shop when you can adopt” had crowds lining up outside the shelter doors prior to the 11:00 opening of the facility; everyone ready to bring a new friend home. According to the organization’s Facebook page, 30 animals were adopted on Friday, prompting the happy announcement: “Thank you to all who attended! It was a busy day and we could not have done it without our amazing staff and volunteers! The kennels are quiet because ALL of the adoption dogs found homes!”
Shortly after the event began Lucky, an exuberant black and white smiling pooch found his new family as did Molly and Roxy. Cats were no exceptions and adopters came from as far away as Indianapolis to meet dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, rabbits and even a pet rat. Adoption fees for all pets were reduced to $10 which included vaccinations, a physical exam by a veterinarian, spay or neutering, micro chipping and a small bag of food.
All potential adopters were qualified by helpful members of the staff on site to help with the busy but joyous event. Now this is a Black Friday event no one minds waiting in line. Check out the video of the adorable adoption candidates – all of which have new homes. Enjoy your lives lucky ones; live long and be happy.
