 Purrfect Cat Rescue Joins Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days

to Empty Our Shelter

 

Purrfect Cat is participating in a gigantic weekend adoption event to place all of our dogs and cats in qualified homes.  Free adoptions will be offered throughout the weekend at the following locations and times:

Newpark Mall, Newark, CA Saturday & Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

More than 200 shelters and rescues in eight communities throughout the United States are participating in the fourth Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days sponsored by the Alameda, CA based Maddie’s Fund®.  Maddie’s Fund has set aside $4 million to provide shelters and rescues with an adoption stipend per pet adopted during the event. Stipends range from $500 to $ 2,000.*

Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days is being held to increase awareness of shelter animals, boost adoptions, and support the shelters and rescue organizations in the eight participating communities.  The event honors the memory of the foundation’s namesake, a miniature schnauzer named Maddie.
