North Shore Animal League America is enlisting more than 2,000 shelter and rescue partners, with thousands of available dogs, cats, puppies and kittens–of all ages, breeds and sizes--as it kicks off its 29th annual Global Pet Adoptathon in partnership with Rachael Ray Nutrish.
This yearly, month-long initiative focuses on finding loving, responsible homes for animals rescued locally, nationally and internationally. It also celebrates the devoted worldwide community that facilitates and supports animal rescue and adoption.
Animal League America works with local and foster-based rescue groups and shelters of all sizes and locations, as well as city and county-wide municipal animal care and control agencies to promote animal adoption as the best approach to finding a pet.
Participating shelter partners are based in major cities (New Orleans, Houston, Los Angeles) and smaller towns (Anderson, SC; Fayetteville, NC; Prineville, OR.) Each group will be celebrating Global Pet Adoptathon with their own events, adoption specials and local promotions. Animal League America collaborates with each to help solicit local media to broadcast the shared message of choosing animal adoption. Together, everyone is working with one common goal: finding responsible, loving homes for thousands of homeless animals.
