The Woof Gang Bakery’s annual adopt-a-thon will take place on Saturday, May 9, 2015, during National Pet Week. On May 9, Woof Gang Bakery stores nationwide will host in-store adoption events to support animal rescue organizations in their local communities.
As part of the adopt-a-thon, local animal welfare groups will have adorable pets available for adoption at 50 Woof Gang Bakery locations across the United States. Woof Gang Bakery stores will offer giveaways throughout the day and will send all adopted pets home with a “welcome home” bag.
The event is an excellent opportunity for prospective pet owners to find their perfect match, whether they are looking for a dog, cat, puppy, kitten, mixed-breed or purebred to become a part of their family.
During this time and throughout the entire year, Woof Gang Bakery strives to help raise awareness for the more than 7 million dogs and cats seeking forever homes across the country.
Woof Gang Bakery strives to support shelter animals and their need for a second chance. In the weeks leading up to the May 9 adopt-a-thon event, Woof Gang Bakery stores will have donation drop boxes for food, treats and toys to collect much-needed items for local rescue groups.
The results from last year’s adoption event were successful, with 66 dogs and cats placed in new homes. Participating animal rescue organization received donations, including nearly 1,800 total pounds of pet food, and other contributions such as treats, toys and accessories, and grooming services.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
