Every year Best Pets and Planet Pet/Planned Pethood sponsor and adoption event at the old Elitch carousel pavilion. 70 adoptions were completed in a single day! The best part is that all the participating adoption groups make sure every animal is spayed or neutered prior to adoption. We believe this is the one of the best ways to help stop pet overpopulation and deal with the issue at its source.
Kudos to all the participating organizations! Click on the links below to check out their websites.
