“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.” -President CEO Allison Lindquist

Oakland, CA (PRWEB) July 02, 2013

The East Bay SPCA will host its annual Adopt-a-thon at Jack London Square on Saturday, July 13 from 10 am to 3 pm. The event, presented by Pet Food Express and Fresh Step Litter, features more than 350 animals from 40 Bay Area rescue groups and shelters plus a dozen pet supply vendors.

The public is encouraged to come to meet cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, guinea pigs, rats and reptiles, all available for adoption. If attendees already have pets, they can talk with dog behavior experts, watch dog training demonstrations, bring their dog to get a low-cost microchip at the HomeAgain microchip booth, and browse a dozen local animal supply vendors selling everything from organic food to specialty pet accessories. This free and fun adoption event even features awesome activities for kids including a Scavenger Search.

“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 not only save the life of the pet you are adopting, but you are creating space for another animal to be brought in and adopted by another loving family.”

Adopting a pet is also a cost saver. When you adopt an animal from the East Bay SPCA, that animal has been medically and behaviorally evaluated, spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, and receives a new pet health exam on us.

The Adopt-a-thon is a fun event that brings together all of the amazing rescue groups and shelters across the Bay Area who are working to help wonderful animals find new homes.
