TOPSHAM — Midcoast Humane is teaming up with Petco for “All for Holiday Homes,” a large-scale adoption weekend on Dec. 1 and 2 at the Petco store in the Topsham Fair Mall. Dozens of puppies, kittens, adult dogs and cats will be up for adoption and awaiting their forever homes from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

“All for Holiday Homes” is a national adoption event organized by Petco to save lives in shelters all across the country. The Petco Foundation will make an additional donation to Midcoast Humane for every adoption processed at the two-day event, up to $75 per adoption. The shelter’s goal is to place 50 animals into loving homes throughout the weekend.

The Petco Foundation, in partnership with thousands of local animal welfare organizations nationwide, has helped unite more than 5.5 million pets with loving families through adoptions.

“For those who adopt at these events, they can feel extra good about adopting. Not only are they opening up their homes to new family members, but they’re helping us receive grant funding from the Petco Foundation that will help us save even more lives,” said Kate Griffith, programs manager for Midcoast Humane. 

Sneak peeks of some of the animals that will be available for adoption will be posted on the shelter’s Facebook page the week before the event. See them at www.Facebook.com/midcoasthumane and on the shelter’s website at midcoasthuamne.org. Questions about the animals may be directed to the shelter’s Brunswick campus at 207-725-5051.
