Ever think about adopting a pet, but weren’t sure if you could find the right animal to complete your happy home? Well now is your chance.
North Fork Animal Welfare League is taking part in a nationwide pet adoption event — teaming up with the nonprofit Maddie’s Fund foundation and hundreds of other shelters — to find homes for 10,000 animals.
The Riverhead and Southold shelters, as well as its Petco Cathouse adoption facility, will be hosting an adoption weekend on May 31st and June 1st.
All shelters will have extended visiting and adoption hours and the North Fork Animal Welfare League will be waiving all adoptions fees.
“We want all of them to have a chance to inspire, love and enrich the lives of their future families,” said David Duffield, head of Maddie’s Fund.
His foundation, which works to find pets loving homes, is footing the bill for all adoptions made during the weekend of May 31 and June 1, donating up to $10 million to be distributed among organizations for the adoptions.
