This Weekend: ASPCA’s Mega Match-a-thon Adoption Events Presented by Subaru

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:

  • First, find out if there’s an adoption event near you this weekend by visiting our events page.
  • Second, go to said event and adopt, adopt, adopt—or volunteer your time.
  • 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.
