The event will be held from 11 am to 5 pm, Saturday, Aug. 4, and Sunday, Aug. 5,at the Petco in Algonquin, 702 S. Randall Road.

“Our 2017 Algonquin event was a huge success, with over 30 animals finding homes in one weekend,” said Beth Foster, CEO of Anderson Animal Shelter, “Our goal is to find 50 animals their forever homes at our 2018 event, saving 100-plus lives in one weekend — the 50 that get adopted and the 50 we can bring in once space is available at the shelter.”
