Our kick-off weekend was a huge success! Nearly 600 pets found their fur-ever homes at our Port Washington shelter during the event, and many more will be adopted as Pet Adoptathon month continues. Plus with more than 2,000 shelter and rescue groups joining in with their own Pet Adoptathon events, the total number of adoptions will be amazing!
PET ADOPTATHON MONTH
Activities run throughout the entire month of June as participating shelters host weekend events filled with adoptable animals and fun activities.

All teachers, with a valid teacher's ID, will receive $25 off adoption fees. Our adoption center will open an hour early on Saturday June 28th, at 9:00am, for all teachers to get “first pick” of the animals available for adoption.

About Pet Adoptathon
In 1995, North Shore Animal League America created the first Pet Adoptathon® with a simple yet profoundly important goal: saving the lives of homeless animals and finding them permanent loving homes.
Since then, over 2,000 shelter partners and rescue groups around the globe joined together with us to make Pet Adoptathon a phenomenal success. Nearly a half million animals, to date, have been saved through Pet Adoptathon, the largest cooperative adoption event in the world.
