They came, they saw, they fell in love at PETA’s wildly successful “Fall” in Love Adopt-a-thon this weekend at our Norfolk, Virginia, headquarters, the Sam Simon Center.
PETA and five area animal shelters—the Virginia Beach SPCA, the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter, the Norfolk Animal Care Center, Partners Among Cats and Canines, and the SPCA of Northeastern North Carolina—brought out almost two dozen of our sweetest canine candidates to strut their stuff on a ridiculously gorgeous fall day in PETA’s Bea Arthur Dog Park.
There was face-painting for the kiddies…
…a fierce corn hole competition…
…and delicious vegan food provided by Poor Boys Burgers, Seoul 757, and My Vegan Sweet Tooth.
More than half of the dogs were adopted, including Roscoe, a handsome hound from the SPCA of Northeastern North Carolina.
It was love at first sight for Dottie and her adoptive parents.
Quinn and Maddie, two puppy sisters (yes, they really are siblings) rescued by PETA, were adopted together by this kind woman.
And Jazz, the formerly chained dog we told you about last week, passed the “sniff” test by his new canine brother and went home with this lucky couple.
If you are interested in adopting any of the dogs you see pictured here who haven’t yet found their “forever couches,” feel free to contact PETA or any of the participating shelters. There are many more where they came from, so if you are thinking about adding a new dog or cat to your family, please visit your local shelter. Remember, always adopt, never shop!
