Free the Shelters

  • Did you know that sponsored adoption events result in three to four times the number of pet adoptions than average?
  • Partnering with sponsored shelters raises awareness of the need for pet adoptions that continues long after the event
  • Our sponsored events result in decreased time in shelter and reduced incidence of euthanasia
  • Increased adoptions reduce overhead costs for shelters and free up space for more animals needing a temporary home
  • All of this improves the lives of animals and their adopters 

About 2.4 million healthy, adoptable cats and dogs—about one every 13 seconds—are put down in U.S. shelters each year.1  Research has shown that removing adoption fees increases the number and speed of pet adoptions and reduces euthanasia.2  Furthermore, there are no significant differences in outcome between pets adopted with or without a fee.3 

We are going from coast to coast with our Free the Shelters campaign sponsoring free adoption events at animal shelters.  Check out the calendar below for an event near you!
