If you've been thinking about adding a pet to your family, you can help the Humane Society of North Texas free up room in their shelters.
The HSNT 6th annual MEGA Adoption Event on June 11 and 12 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Amon G. Carter Jr. Exhibit Hall at Will Rogers Memorial Center in Fort Worth will feature some of the 1,200 pets in need of a home.
"The Humane Society of North Texas is excited to host the MEGA Adoption Event and place hundreds of pets into much-needed homes," said Cassie Davidson with HSNT. "This MEGA Adoption Event couldn't have come at a better time to free up space in our shelter so we can save even more pets this summer."
Dogs, cats, guinea pigs, rabbits and even a boa constrictor named Missssssssschevious (get it?) are up for adoption.
Humane Society of North Texas Hosts MEGA Adoption Event in Fort Worth
The adoption fee for all pets is only $10. All adoptable dogs and cats have been spayed or neutered, microchipped, and received rabies and age-appropriate vaccinations. Every dog or cat adopted will receive a free initial veterinary visit (with a participating local vet).
For anyone wanting to get the first pick, HSNT is offering an Early Bird Fast Pass which allows early admission to the first 100 registered. Each pass allows entry to the event an hour before it opens to the public on Saturday and allows each person to adopt one pet. The cost is $50 but does not cover the $10 adoption fee.
