The Elmhurst Petco store, at 199 Route 83, and the Schaumburg Petco, at 60 E. Golf Road, are hosting Mega-Adoption events to help find homes for 300 dogs that were scheduled to be put to death.
The dogs were rescued in rural Oklahoma and Arkansas. Thanks to the help and quick response of TAILS Humane Society, Animal Care League and the Petco Foundation, these dogs were able to escape death and were transferred to the Chicago area. They’re all spayed or neutered, healthy and awaiting loving homes.
Petco is hosting these Mega Adoption events to help provide relief for several overcrowded Oklahoma shelters and, most importantly, to find homes for these 200 dogs and puppies. Oklahoma partner organizations include Cherokee County Humane Society, Save Our Strays, Happy Paws, Muskogee Animal Shelter and Shana’s Last Chance Rescues.
Guests that attend can learn more about what these shelters do for the community, inquire about the best ways to care for a new pet and meet hundreds of adoptable dogs and puppies in need of homes.
The pets will be waiting to meet their new forever families from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 27 and 28.
To reach the Elmhurst store, call (630) 782-0648; the number for the Schaumburg store is (847) 884-8370.
