Big Pet Adoptathon This Weekend

For 15 years, In&Out Magazine has been the definitive source of “Everything that’s going on” in and out of the community. We thank you, our readers, as well as the businesses that support the magazine through advertising, for that opportunity. But with little going on, and many businesses suspending or canceling their ads during the Covid-19 crisis, we are suspending publication of the magazine and web sites for the month of May. 


Each year, some 6.5 million dogs and cats, in roughly equal numbers, end up in animal shelters nationwide, and about 1.5 million are euthanized. The numbers are down from about 7.2 million and 2.6 million, respectively, in 2011. “This decline can be partially explained by an increase in the percentage of animals adopted,” says the Humane Society of the United States.

Two adoption events this weekend will aim to help dozens more dogs and cats find new homes. All pets are spayed, neutered and immunized. Adoption fees vary.

The annual Phoenix Animal Care Coalition (PACC911) adoptathon will feature 60 animal-rescue organizations and hundreds of dogs, cats, rabbits, and other small pets, said event spokesperson Cheri Moreno. There will be a food vendor, and a lure course, as in years past, where you can learn if your dog was meant to race. 

Donations of pet food for dogs and cats are welcome, and those who donate are entered into a raffle. Kids and well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome.
