The Animal Foundation says more than 100 homeless pets now have a home thanks to the Mega Match-A-Thon adoption event this weekend.
The shelter held the event Saturday and Sunday. It was part of a nationwide effort supported by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The group granted nearly $500,000 for large-scale adoption events nationwide.
The shelter gave special incentives to get more people to adopt a pet, including a free collar and ID tags. Adoptive families also received free food for their new pet. Shelter officials are pleased with the results.
