What a blur. This past weekend was our Annual Global Pet Adoptathon at North Shore Animal League America; hundreds of puppies, dogs, kittens and cats were rescued and brought to our adoption center in hopes of finding a potential home. This weekend is the biggest and busiest adoption event of the year.
Beginning at 9am on Saturday, May 6th, our adoption center was open for 36 hours straight as we hoped to find homes for our puppies, dogs, kittens and cats.
People lined up all throughout our campus for the chance to adopt one of these little guys. Naturally, on a busy weekend like this one, we wanted to be on our A-game. At our adoption center our kennel associates and managers work diligently to make sure our animals are going home to the right match; on a weekend like Adoptathon, that rule is not any different.
If we were going to make it through the weekend, I thought that the volunteers and associates could use some sustenance.
I hoped that a few batches of chocolate chip cookies and Nutella brownies would help boost morale.
36 hours later, we are happy to announce that over 440 puppies, dogs, kittens and cats found a home during our Adoptathon weekend. It was an incredibly busy weekend, but certainly a wonderful one as well.
