Mazie's Mission, a local no-kill animal rescue group, is holding their first annual 24-hour "Fall in Love Fur-Ever Adopt-a-Thon" beginning Friday night.
The adopt-a-thon kicks-off Friday at 9 p.m. at The Village at Fairview and will run continuously until 9 p.m. Saturday night.
Throughout the event, the group will place dogs and cats in new forever homes at discounted adoption rates while providing a little entertainment for kids and families along the way.
They'll offer low-cost vaccines and microchips for your pets, free coffee for you (you may stop by at 4 a.m. after all), bounce houses for your kids and music for all.
Anyone who adopts a pet between the hours of 10 p.m. and midnight, while wearing pajamas, only pays the $50 adoption fee. Between midnight and 2 a.m., all black pets are $50.
You get the idea.
Several area shelters and rescue groups will provide animals for the adopt-a-thon including Mazie's Mission, Homeless Animals Rescue Team, the Humane Society of North Texas, North Texas Cat Rescue, Seagoville Animal Services, Moka's Dog Rescue and Limestone Animal Rescue Adoption Shelter.
The Village at Fairview is located at the corner of U.S. 75 and Stacy Road in Allen. The adoption event will be near the Grand Commons Stage and will run from 9 p.m. Friday until 9 p.m. Saturday.
