The second annual Mega Pet Adoption Weekend is where you can meet adorable pets from local animal welfare organizations participating from across the GTA.

Hosted by the Toronto Humane Society and sponsored by PetSmart Charities of Canada and PetSmart® on Friday, June 5 – Sunday, June 7 10:00a.m. – 6:00 p.m.  at the Queen Elizabeth building at Exhibition Place in Toronto.

For $25.00, you can bring home a new four-legged family member. More than 600 companion animals will be on-hand and the opportunity for you to meet available pets.

“Adopting a new companion is a rewarding decision, one that will bring a lot of joy and create memories to last a lifetime,” said John DeFranco, President, PetSmart Charities of Canada. “Through partnerships, such as those with the Toronto Humane Society and Toronto Animal Services, we’re able to find forever homes for even more pets.”

“Each year more than 15,000 animals enter GTA shelters. During these three days we hope to find 600 of them new forever homes. Anyone who is considering adding a pet to their family should join us and see for themselves the amazing animals available for adoption,” said Barbara Steinhoff, Executive Director,Toronto Humane Society.   For more information visit:
