Mega Pet Adopt-a-thon Success

Posted: Updated:

More than 65 animals are now living in a new a home thanks to the mega pet adoption event over the weekend.

Several animal organizations across the Pine Belt participated in the event, including Pet Smart, Southern Pines Animal Shelter, Hub City Humane Society and Happy Healthy Pet Adoptions.

It was held in the parking lot of Pet Smart this weekend.  Some of the animals adopted were sponsored at cheaper adoption costs.

Animal shelter spokesmen say this was the biggest off site animal adoption event they've ever hosted.

"It was just an enormous success," Said Southern Pines Manager Ginny Sims.   "We had so many people come out. Some just to visit, say hello, meet the animals, a lot of them to adopt."
