Is your best friend fluffy, furry, feathered or scaly?

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) July 16, 2014

Is your best friend fluffy, furry, feathered or scaly? Are you in the market for a new best friend? All things pet can be found on the Oakland waterfront this Saturday, July 19, 2014 from 10 am to 3 pm when the East Bay SPCA hosts the sixth annual Adopt-a-Thon at Jack London Square. Presented by sponsors Pet Food Express and Rug Doctor, the Adopt-a-Thon features more than 300 adoptable animals from 35 Bay Area rescue groups and shelters, plus a dozen pet supply vendors. From pigeons to Pomeranians, there will be cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, rats and reptiles on site and available for adoption.

Whether you are looking for a new best friend or just wanting to take care of the pets you have, the event has something for everyone, even people who come with their own dogs. At the Adopt-a-Thon, dog trainers will be on hand to answer questions and give demonstrations. HomeAgain will sponsor $10 microchips to help owners track their dogs if they go missing.

“The East Bay SPCA is proud to host the Adopt-a-Thon at Jack London Square, which is the largest event of its kind in the East Bay,” says Allison Lindquist, East Bay SPCA president and CEO. “When you adopt a pet from any animal shelter or rescue group, you help with pet overpopulation. Not only do you save the life of the pet you adopt, but you create space for another animal to be adopted by a loving family.”

Now in its sixth year at Jack London Square, the East Bay SPCA Adopt-a-Thon is widely anticipated, bringing together 35 amazing rescue groups and shelters across the Bay Area who work tirelessly to find wonderful companion animals a forever home. The East Bay SPCA first established its Adopt-a-Thon more than ten years ago as a 24-hour event held at the shelter.
