National Adoption Weekend

September 14, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Be prepared for wagging tails, wet noses, and unconditional love when you attend a Petsmart Charities Adoption Event. 7 Local Groups, 100 Animals, 3-Day Pet Adoption Event

Featuring 100+ Adoptable Dogs, Cats, Puppies and Kittens

Sponsored by PetSmart Charities®

SIOUX CITY — For the first time, the Tri-State Cooperative Coalition is rounding up adorable, adoptable pets and showing them off during a three-day adoption event Friday, Sept. 14 to Sunday, Sept. 16 to celebrate National Pet Adoption Weekend.

“So many people don’t realize how many truly remarkable pets are available at your local shelter or rescue group and for very reasonable adoption fees. We are bringing seven local groups together in one location. We will have more than 100 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens who are healthy, fully vaccinated and spayed/neutered. Find unconditional love and inspire others to adopt their best friend by sharing your adoption story on social media using #iaadopted. You can adopt your own new best friend from a Petmart store near you or if the timing isn’t right for you, post a photo of an adoptable pet with #PicMe. One single post could inspire someone else to adopt a pet in need.

The adoption event will be at PetSmart, 5001 Sergeant Road, Sioux City, IA 51106.
Hours for the adoption event will be:

5 to 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 14
10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 15th
Noon to 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16

In addition to finding the perfect pet, other family fun activities include:
Creepy Critter Costume Contest:
The first annual Tri-State Coalition adoption and creepy critter costume contest on September 15. Runway competitions will begin at 9:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded for the Best Overall Creepy Costume, Scariest, Cutest, and Best Critter- Human Collaboration.
Book Signing, fun prizes
The spooky theme continues when author E. Dee Taylor will be signing copies of her charming book, “Lots of Cats,” about a cute little witch who wants to conjure friends and they all show up with whiskers and tails. There also will be drawings and fun prizes during the book signing.
