How To Conduct Successful Adoption Events

A successful adoption event — one that draws a crowd and results in many adoptions — benefits all the animals at area shelters and rescue groups because it publicizes your efforts, thereby encouraging even more adoptions. You can also collaborate with other local rescue groups or shelters to put on adoption events. Pooling the resources of several groups allows for larger events, attracts more potential adopters, offers the public a bigger selection of pets from which to choose and, in the end, saves more lives.

Putting on such an event doesn't have to be daunting. This manual will help you with hosting, planning, coordinating and putting on a super adoption event.

Be our Best Friend

Best Friends Animal Society is working with you to save the lives of cats and dogs all across the country, giving pets second chances and happy homes.

Just a few short years ago, cats and dogs were killed in staggering numbers in this country simply because shelters didn't have the community support or the resources to save their lives. That number is now less that half a million per year, but there's still work to do to ensure a bright future for every dog and cat in America.

Best Friends operates the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals and is committed to saving the lives of homeless pets by working with shelters and passionate people like you. Together, we will bring the whole country to no-kill in 2025. Together, we will Save Them All.
