June is Pet Adoptathon Month Presenting sponsor Purina

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.

The Word has spread!

The Southeast Volusia Humane Society of New Smyrna Beach, Florida celebrated their Pet Adoptathon with a fantastic rescue. Champ is a heart worm positive dog and was having a hard time getting adopted because of this. Thankfully, he was on treatment and found an adopter that was willing to help him get better. His new best friend, Allison, was already making appointments with a groomer to get him a new haircut. Champ feels like a real winner today!
