It’s time to meet your match, people—your four-legged match! Once again the ASPCA is teaming up with dozens of animal shelters across the country for the third-annual ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon, presented by Subaru. This weekend (October 17-19), more than 100 animal rescues across the country are joining forces to co-host some epic adoption events. We chipped in more than $220,000 in grants, made possible by Subaru as part of our participation in the Subaru “Share the Love” event last year, to help make it happen. ASPCA supporter Swiffer is gifting shelters with its Big Green Box full of products, and adopters also will receive a coupon for a Swiffer Sweeper.
Last year’s Mega Match-a-thon saw nearly 6,000 pets adopted in just one weekend! Let’s top that number. Here’s how you can help:
As you can probably guess, we’re pretty big on shelter dogs. That’s why we’re thrilled that October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month (ASDM)!
Join us, along with co-hosts The Dodo (@dodo) and Domo (@domo), on Wednesday, October 15 from 7:00-8:00 P.M. EST to celebrate all things shelter dog during our ASDM Twitter Party and Giveaway!
This fun trivia contest will focus on famous dogs from pop culture (think Lassie and Rin Tin Tin) and we’ll be giving away prize packs every six minutes with a grand prize from Swiffer (@swiffer) and Alex and Ani (@alexandani)!
Don’t forget to RSVP here so you’ll be eligible to win prizes, and follow the hashtag #ASDMparty on Twitter to join the fun. See you there!
Meet sweet pups Caitlyn and Dermott! These best buddies, who would like to be adopted together, came to the ASPCA as part of a cruelty investigation. They’ve come a long way since their rescue and now they’re looking for a patient and caring forever family.
This playful pair is shy at first and may need a little extra space as they warm up to their new home—but with time and a lot of love, there’s nothing these two would love more than to curl up on the couch by your side! These two play well with other dogs and could even make a few canine buddies or become great friends to your resident dog.
Although Dermott is blind, we think that makes him even more special! He has adjusted very well to his condition, especially with the help of pal Caitlyn, and our Adoptions team is available to walk you through the best ways to manage his needs. We know adopting pets with special needs can be a financial commitment and time investment, but these loving pups will bring so much joy in return. Adopt Caitlyn and Dermott today!
Caitlyn and Dermott are available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting, please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about these best friends, please visit Caitlyn and Dermott’s profile pages.
Hazel is a super-smart dog who already knows Sit and Down! She’d love to have you teach her other tricks. Hazel is very affectionate with her inner circle of human friends at the Adoption Center, and enjoys daily running exercise. She’d to best with an experienced adopter in a home with teens-and-up. Visit Hazel’s profile page to learn more.
Bonnie is a sweet and affectionate pup, especially around her favorite people! Once she gets to know you, she’ll stick by your side like glue. This special girl would love to be the center of attention and would do best in an adults-only household. Visit Bonnie’s profile to learn more.
Frieda loves everyone she meets! She is very energetic, and enjoys plenty of daily exercise. Frieda enjoys saying “hello” to polite dogs. This smart dog already knows “Sit!” We think she’d do best in a home with kids 10-and-up. Visit Frieda’s profile page to learn more.
Calling thrill seekers! Delilah is a super friendly and energetic pup who would love to meet you. This pretty girl loves to run and play with her favorite people—she’d be thrilled to escape the city with you for a long hike through the woods or join you on your favorite fall time adventure.
Delilah loves everyone she meets, but prefers to have her own space around other pups at times and would benefit from training to help her play with manners. This busy girl has a mind of her own and is in a hurry to get to where she’s going, so Delilah would do best with an experienced adopter who is willing to spend quality time running and playing with her. Adopt Delilah today!
Delilah is available for adoption at the ASPCA Adoption Center. If you are interested in adopting, please call our Adoptions department in New York City at (212) 876-7700 ext. 4120. To learn more about Delilah, please visit her profile page.
