Reilly (ID No. A41833092) is a sweet, goofy boy who enjoys playing with and being around other dogs.

For the second year in a row, the Fort Worth Animal Shelter is partnering with the Humane Society of North Texas to host the largest shelter pet adoption event in Fort Worth. The Mega Adoption Event is made possible by a generous 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 1, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Dec. 7-8. Admission is free.

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.

“What makes this event so special is that it’s a family event,” said Dr. Tim Morton, Code Compliance assistant director overseeing the Fort Worth Animal Shelter. “During the first year’s adoption event we saw families looking for, and making the decision together, on who would be the best for them.”

It’s a pet lovers dream to have hundreds and hundreds of dogs and cats in one single location – knowing each of these pets deserve an incredible life with their own family. The Mega Adoption Event has been hosted twice – December 2018 and June 2019, where a total of 1,829 shelter pets were adopted.

The goal of this upcoming event is to have these pets in their new homes for the holidays. They certainly deserve a second chance.
