Super Adoption Day

SAD1

The slogan “Don’t Shop, Adopt!” has become very popular over the past few years as the attention for rescue agencies has grown. Many pets are left without a forever family due to illness, death, change of living situation or other reasons. These pets are wonderful, loving animals who need your family!

London will have it’s 6th annual Super Adoption Day with cats and dogs looking for their forever family to come and adopt them. Not sure about adoption? There will be people there to discuss the benefits of adoption, how the adoption process works, how to find the perfect animal for your family, and how to prepare your home for it’s new member. There will also be animal rescue groups there to discuss how you can get more involved or help out.

Please do not bring your current pets to the event! No animals are allowed other than the animals that are up for adoption.
