Mega Match Alert!

There are some exciting times ahead! We are gearing up for our adoption event next week, and there are many animals ready to find their forever homes! In this post, I want to provide information about our event, as well as advertise some of our animals and give tips to potential adopters.

 

First, let me give you some event information. This year is a little different since we are doing it in August rather than October and it will be in conjunction with Great Plains SPCA and Kansas City Pet Project. The Petco Foundation is generously sponsoring the event. It’s a three-day event, and all animals available for adoption will be priced at thirty-five dollars. We are closed for adoptions the week of Mega Match beginning Monday, August Seventh, until Thursday, August Tenth. Our hours for the event are; Friday, August 11 – 10 am to 7 pm     Saturday, August 12 – 10 am – 7 pm Sunday, August 13– 12 – 6 pm. Our goal is to adopt out 170 animals over the course of the event.

 

Second, here are some tips  to help better your chances during our event.

 

  1. Get here early! Almost always there is a huge line outside the front doors by 10:00, so if you have a certain animal in mind, it might be wise to come and wait early.
  2. I would suggest having multiple dogs or cats in mind, because the line is first come first serve, so someone ahead of you could want the animal you do. If you aren’t picky and have multiple animals, it makes for a better outcome.
  3. Please be patient during this time, as we have limited staff and volunteers trying to go as fast as they can. Understand the process might take a couple hours depending on needs and situations.
  4. If you have a dog at home and are adopting a dog, our adoptions staff are willing to put a two-hour hold on a dog so you can go home and get yours for a dog-to-dog.
  5. Understand that this is a high-stress event; meaning animals, staff, volunteers, and members of the public are emotional during this time. We should try and remain calm so the animals don’t pick up on our stress.

Those are really the only tips you need for an event-everything else relies on time management.

 

Finally, I would like to show you some pictures of our very adoptable Waifs!
