What is the mission of your organization?
The purpose of our Mega Adoption is to educate the public about animal adoption and the need for the community to support local shelters and rescue groups, and then offer a platform to bring together animals in need of a home with people willing to give them one. Our event is the single most successful adoption venue for most of our participating groups. Not only do they see a marked spike in their adoption numbers at our event, but we also aim to plant a seed in our community that helps change mindsets about shelter animals and drives home the notion to “think adoption first” when looking for a new furry family member. It is reported that many adoptions in the months following the event are directly attributed to our educational campaigns or a group’s participation in My Furry Valentine.
