Maddies Fund Adopt-a-thon

Submitted By Fremont Police Department

The Tri-City Animal Shelter is excited to announce that they will once again participate in the MaddieÕs Adopt-a-thon event on Saturday, May 31.

The largest national pet adoption event is financed and organized by MaddieÕs Fund¨, a family foundation inspired by Maddie, a Miniature Schnauzer. MaddieÕs Fund¨ aims to find homes for 10,000 animals and has earmarked $10 million for this yearÕs event. More than 200 shelters and rescue groups within these communities will offer free adoptions to qualified homes at various adoption locations in each community.

Adoptions are free, but all regular procedures (pet licensing, microchip, spay/neuter) will apply, visit www.fremontpolice.org/AnimalServices. It will be a busy day for the shelter and in an effort to try and help expedite the process here are a few tips to help you prepare for May 31.

Renters: Bring written landlord approval (lease agreement or letter from your landlord)

Home owners outside of Fremont: Bring proof of ownership of your home (property tax, mortgage statement). A household bill will not prove ownership of your home.

Have another dog at home? Bring them with you to do a meet and greet so we can make sure they get along before sending them home with you.

All members of the household need to be here to make sure whatever critter you are looking to adopt fits in well with everyone.

Help MaddieÕs Fund¨ reach their goal of finding loving homes for thousands of homeless dogs and cats across the country on May 31! Learn more by visiting http://adopt.maddiesfund.org.
