Norfolk, Va. – Families who come out to PETA’s Sam Simon Center on Saturday might just take home a new best friend. PETA—along with seven other Virginia animal shelters (poster with full list available here)—is hosting an adopt-a-thon at its Bea Arthur Dog Park, featuring free veggie burgers, veggie hot dogs, and popcorn, in addition to treats for the dogs. It’s all in honor of late The Simpsons co-creator, noted philanthropist, and PETA honorary director Sam Simon, who would have celebrated his 60th birthday on June 6.
Where: The Bea Arthur Dog Park at PETA’s Sam Simon Center, 501 Front St., Norfolk
When: Saturday, June 6, 11 a.m.–2 p.m.
“PETA’s adopt-a-thon will be a fun way for Hampton Roads families to meet some of the wonderful dogs in our area who desperately need homes,” says PETA Senior Vice President Daphna Nachminovitch. “A sunny day on the Elizabeth River, with veggie dogs on the grill and adoptable dogs to meet and greet, will be the perfect tribute to Sam Simon’s lifelong legacy of helping animals.”
