Find Your New Best Friend at Adopt-a-Thon

Whether you’re looking for a new family member or just want to support the local animal rescue community, you’ll have a great time at PETA’s Sam Simon Center Saturday.

PETA and seven other Virginia animal shelters are hosting an adopt-a-thon at Bea Arthur Dog Park on Saturday, June 6.

There will be free veggie burgers, veggie “hot dogs,” and popcorn, and of course treats for the dogs. It’s all in honor of late Simpsons co-creator and PETA Honorary Director Sam Simon, who would have celebrated his 60th birthday on June 6.

The lucky dogs will be around from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The other shelters participating in the regional event are the Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center, the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter, the Virginia Beach SPCA, the Virginia Beach Animal Care and Adoption Center, Chesapeake Animal Services, the Chesapeake Humane Society, and the Danville Area Humane Society. Partners Among Cats and Canines (PACC) from Southampton County will participate as well.
