PHILADELPHIA - This weekend, the Brandywine Valley SPCA is holding its biannual Mega Adoption Event in an effort to find forever homes for more than 1,000 homeless pets.
The event — which is the largest adoption event in the country — is a collaborative effort between Brandywine Valley SPCA and 10 other local shelters and rescues.
The event takes place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center.

Adoption fees are $35, and families will take home their furry friends the same day they visit. All animals will be spayed or neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on vaccinations.
Shelter officials say the event has placed more than 6,000 animals into loving homes over the past six mega adoption events.
