Mega Adoption Event

This weekend The Brandywine SPCA and Petco are holding a mega adoption event at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Over 1,000 animals will be up for adoption.

HOUSTON — A Houston area collaborative adoption event will bring more than 1000 adoptable dogs and cats to the George R. Brown Convention Center on November 9 and 10, 2019, from 10 am to 5 pm, to find their new loving homes.  

Pets available for adoption will include puppies, kittens, adult dogs, adult cats, and senior pets. All pets will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, up to date on vaccinations, and ready to go home the same day. 

Admission is free, parking is free at the Toyota Center Garage, and the adoption fee is $25.

Houston area organizations participating in the Mega Adoption Event include BARC Animal Shelter & Adoptions, Montgomery County Animal Shelter, Fort Bend County Animal Services, Harris County Public Health, League City Animal Control and SPCA of Brazoria County, along with other Texas organizations.

This will be Houston's first Mega Adoption Event. Mega events have saved thousands of animals across the country. For example, the Brandywine Valley SPCA, which serves two counties in Pennsylvania and the entire state of Delaware, has adopted out 6,352 homeless animals since 2016 through its six events. The organization holds Mega Adoption events twice a year, in June and December. Based on Brandywine's prior success, the organization is collaborating with local shelters to share its experience in planning, marketing and operating a Mega Adoption Event.
