Over 950 cats and dogs adopted out across Nevada in 2 days
More than 950 cats and dogs were adopted out across Nevada this past weekend.
Forty-one shelters and rescue groups made it happen as part of a free-adoption event organized by Maddie's® Pet Project in Nevada, a new three-year campaign aimed at helping more homeless cats and dogs find good homes and creating a safety net for pets by improving access to veterinary care in the Silver State.
New survey uncovers Nevada’s big love for cats and dogs
The fate of animals in shelters is important to 91% of Nevadans.
That’s what a new 2018 survey commissioned by Maddie's® Pet Project in Nevada found.
The survey also found that the vast majority – 87% – say the well-being of cats is important to them, and 97% say the same for dogs.
Free pet adoptions April 27-28 across Nevada
Hundreds of dogs and cats will be available for free adoption April 27-28 at shelters and rescue groups across Nevada during Maddie's® Pet Adoption Days.
The event is happening thanks to a new initiative called Maddie's® Pet Project in Nevada that aims to create a safety net for cats and dogs by increasing adoptions from shelters and improving access to veterinary care in underserved areas.
