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 second-annual ASPCA Mega Match-a-thon! This weekend (October 18-20), nearly 40 animal rescues across the country are joining forces to co-host some epic adoption events. We threw down more than $278,000 in grants to help make it happen.

Last year’s Mega Match-a-thon saw more than 6,100 pets adopted in just one weekend! Can we top that number? Yes, we can!

So what can you do to help? So much! Check it out:

  • First, find out if there’s an adoption event near you this weekend by visiting your local shelter’s website.
  • Second, go to said event and adopt, adopt, adopt! You can also volunteer your time; shelters can always use an extra hand…or four.
  • And, finally, don’t forget to spread the word! Share this article on Facebook and Twitter and make sure everyone makes adoption their first option this weekend and every day of the year. Be sure to follow the hashtag #MegaMatch for event details and updates of pets across America finding new homes!
