High turnout for mega adoption event
INDIANAPOLIS - Hundreds of cats and dogs are out of the shelter and in homes after the inaugural "Indy Mega Adoption" event on Saturday.
Organizers said approximately 750 animals were ready to be adopted at the State Fairgrounds on Saturday. The event brought together animals from numerous local shelters under one roof.
People also showed up – in droves.
"They came in and our very first adoption happened about a minute and a half after we were open," said Megan Bennett, who works with the FACE Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Clinic.
Within 90 minutes, 91 dogs and 58 cats had been adopted, all for just $30 apiece.
By the end of the day, 217 dogs and 215 cats had been adopted, and organizers said hundreds more animals were expected to be at the fairgrounds for the second day of the event on Sunday.
Adoptions were set to open at 10 a.m. Sunday, and organizers were already talking about another "Mega Adoption" event in October.
