ST. PETERSBURG To kick off National Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) will once again team up with other animal organizations to find loving homes for pets. The Super Adopt-A-Thon, Saturday, Oct. 2, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., will include more than 20 animal rescue agencies, shelters and organizations at the Dog Training Club of St. Petersburg.
Supporting animal groups will include Pinellas County Animal Services, Dog Training Club of St. Petersburg, Pinellas Animal Foundation, Humane Society of Pinellas, Pet Safe Haven, and Save Our Strays.
In addition, purebred rescue groups such as Golden Retriever Rescue, Boxer Rescue, Daschund Adoption and Rescue, and many more.
“Some people feel more comfortable adopting homeless animals outside of a shelter environment,” said Beth Lockwood, SPCA executive director. “We have tried to accommodate, hoping that a centralized location will encourage the public to take a look at the many wonderful animals found at various shelters in Pinellas County.” Oldies 104.7 FM will host the Adopt-A-Thon. A goal has been set to adopt 104 pets in this one-day event.
The Dog Training Club of St. Petersburg is at 4400-B 34th St. N. Visit www.spcaofpinellas.org or call 586-3591.
