MIAMI SHELTERS AND RESCUE GROUPS UNITED TO PARTICIPATE
IN ASPCA NATIONWIDE MEGA MATCH-A-THON
You’ve heard of Match.com.
Now there is Mega Match-A-Thon, a time when you can find the perfect dog or cat companion and give him or her a needed forever home.
Sponsored by ASPCA, the event will be held on Saturday, October 19, 2013 from 09:00am till 09:00pm - without stopping - and will have more than 500 homeless animals of all breeds, sizes, colors and personalities, and all eager to find a forever home. The marathon adoption of puppies and kittens will kick-off the festivities at 09:00am (Who will you take home?)
The ASPCA, the Humane Society of Greater Miami, Miami-Dade Animal Services, and The Cat Network, together with rescue groups from all over South Florida, will host the event in Tropical Park, 7900 Bird Road in Miami. Miami is one of 37 communities nationwide to receive grant funding to participate in the nationwide ASPCA “Mega Match-a-thon” event. The ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) is granting nearly $270,000 to support large-scale adoption events like this. All of the Mega Match-A-Thons throughout the country will be held on the same day. Think of how many lives of cats and dogs living in shelters can be saved. Adoptions will start at $30. Admission to the event and parking is free.
This is a family affair with a Kid’s Arena complete with fun games for children of all ages. Miami area residents and businesses have stepped in offering their time, talent and services in the effort to create a rich entertainment for adults, children and families and have a spectacular event.
