Super Adoption Event Recap

On September 18th, 29 local animal rescues and organizations set up tents at the Como Zoo for the first-ever full day "Meet Your Best Friend" Super Adoption Event. Pet Haven was more than excited to join our animal welfare friends and MN PAW partners for the opportunity to show off our dogs and cats and educate the public on animal rescue.

The morning started off cool and cloudy, with a little bit of rain. Pet Haven volunteers were troopers (as usual) and fought through the inclement weather to get our tents set up and animals ready for public showing. By noon, the clouds had parted and the sun was shining brightly. Throughout the day, we had 12 Pet Haven cats and 10 dogs put on their best "Adopt Me!" faces and they didn't disappoint! We had a steady stream of visitors and potential adopters to our booths. Some were interested in adding to their family, others were there just to simply love on our furry friends.

Thanks to all of our Pet Haven volunteers and fosters who made it out that day...and a very special thank you to our guest volunteers, Girl Scouts from Troop 50095 in Apple Valley who were working hard to hand out Pet Haven brochures.

Hope to see you at our next regularly scheduled adoption events on 10/16!
