If you’re considering adopting a new best friend—this upcoming weekend, June 4 and 5, could be a very important weekend for you! The 2nd annual Maddie’s Matchmaker Adoptathon has arrived and Community Concern for Cats will be showing all of our adoptable cats and kittens at our adoption sites in Lafayette and Pleasant Hill at Pet Food Express and in Walnut Creek at PETCO. Adoptions will take place on Saturday, 12 noon to 5 pm and on Sunday 12 noon to 4 pm. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we will be featuring cats of all ages—senior cats, kittens, and even special needs cats that are looking for their special home. Adoptions will be free to qualified homes.
The goal of Maddie’s® Matchmaker Adoptathon is to find loving homes for every cat and dog in Alameda and Contra Costa County’s shelters and rescue groups. Last year, Maddie’s Fund sponsored and organized their first adoptathon in the Bay Area that saved the lives of almost 2,000 dogs and cats. The event marks the largest collaboration of animal shelters and rescue groups in Alameda and Contra Costa County coming together for a two-day pet adoption event.
Maddie’s Fund®, www.maddiesfund.org, is a family foundation, which is funded by Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl to help create a no-kill nation where all healthy and treatable shelter dogs and cats are guaranteed a loving home.
