MIAMI - Miami's Mega Pet Adoption Event, presented by PetSmart Charities, will be held from Friday night, October 26, at 11:59 p.m., until Saturday night, October 27 at 11:59 p.m.—without stopping – RAIN OR SHINE — and will have more than 800 homeless animals eager to find a forever home. The marathon adoption of puppies and kittens will kick-off the festivities at midnight and then continue with the older animals for the rest of the 24 hour-long event.

The Humane Society of Greater Miami, Miami-Dade Animal Services, and The Cat Network, together with rescue groups from all over South Florida, have once again united forces following the amazing success of this past spring's Mega Match-a-thon event that found homes for 288 animals. More than 4,000 people attended the spring event.

The event will take place at the covered Equestrian Center in Tropical Park, 7900 Bird Road in Miami. This is a family affair with an entire Kid's Festival, complete with rides, and fun games for children of all ages.

Admission to the park is free and complimentary parking is available in the park.

"Our goal this year is to find homes for at least 600 deserving cats and dogs," says Donna Tallon, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Greater Miami. "With the communities' help, I am confident that we can do it!"
