WNY Furtastic Adopt a Thon on Feb 9th

Who: Local animal rescues, fostering networks, animal shelters, and WNY’s pet loving
community will come together in partnership with the Erie County Health Department
to help dogs and cats get adopted into loving homes.

What: A collaborative effort between local shelters, animal groups, rescues and foster
networks, in a fun festive atmosphere to adopt out a substantial number of animals in a
limited period of time. This event will take place in partnership with the Erie County
Health Department and feature fun family friendly activities, prizes and raffles.

When: Saturday, February 9, 2019
10am – 3pm

Where: Pvt. Leonard Post Jr. #6251
2450 Walden Avenue
Cheektowaga, NY 14225

How: We have created an event where animal shelters, rescues and foster networks can come
together under one roof to spotlight the adoptable animals currently in their care. This
will offer a one stop shopping experience to potential adopters looking to fall in love and
bring home a new best friend. Every pet adopted will receive a free microchip and
registration courtesy of the Erie County Health Department, and an adopter goodie bag.

Why: There are millions of pets that will end up in shelters in North America this year. About
half of those pets will be euthanized due to overpopulation. Every pet adopted at this
event will mean two lives were saved. The pet that has been adopted and the one that
we’ve created a space for whether it be at a local shelter, within a loving foster home or
safely in the hands of a rescue. With your help, this event will build awareness to the
plight of homeless pets and help to save lives.
