Anderson Animal Shelter Holds Mega Adoption Event May 12 in North Aurora

Come find the cat, dog, kitten or puppy of your dreams at Anderson’s first Mega Adoption Event in 2018! Save a life AND expand your four-legged family — just in time for summer.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 12, at Anderson Animal Shelter’s North Aurora Adoption Center, located next to Pet Supplies Plus on Randall Road.

The MEGA Adoption event will feature more than 60 spay/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped animals — dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens — ready to make YOUR home their forever home!

The special event is made possible through a partnership with Pet Supplies Plus. About 30 dogs and cats are routinely housed at the North Aurora Adoption Center, which is open seven days a week.

All animals are spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, dewormed and microchipped. Each adoption comes with a free vet exam from a participating clinic and one month of free pet health insurance.

“Thanks to our partnership with Pets Supplies Plus, we have been able to save an additional 953 lives so far, since the adoption center’s opening in February of last year. On May 12, we’re looking to increase that number and expect to have more than 60 pets up for adoption and available to go home the very same day,” said Beth-Drake Foster, CEO for Anderson Animal Shelter, “Our goal is to have all 60 animals in their new homes by the end of the weekend.”
