For the first time ever, the Fort Worth Animal Shelter is partnering with the Humane Society of North Texas (HSNT) to host the largest shelter pet adoption event in Fort Worth. The Mega Adoption Event is made possible by a $25,000 grant from the Petco Foundation.

More than 500 amazing pets — dogs, cats, rabbits and a few other soft and fuzzy pets — will be under one roof at the Will Rogers Coliseum, Cattle Barn 2, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Dec. 8-9. Admission is free.

Come find the pet of your dreams. You’ll be saving a life and expanding your four-legged family, just in time for the holidays. The adoption fee for all pets is $10. All the adoptable pets have been spayed/neutered, received rabies and core vaccinations (age appropriate), microchipping, a free initial vet visit (with a participating local vet) and 30-day pet insurance.

"This special adoption event is for the entire family. Can you imagine having hundreds and hundreds of dogs and cats in one single location? It’s a pet lover’s dream," said Cassie Lackey, HSNT communications manager. "Our goal is to have these pets in their new homes for the holidays. They certainly deserve a second chance."
