Brandywine Valley SPCA Mega Adoption Event: More than 1,000 pets seek forever homes


This weekend, the Brandywine Valley SPCA is set to hold its biannual Mega Adoption Event in an effort to find forever homes for more than 1,000 homeless pets.

The undertaking — which is the largest adoption event in the country — is a collaborative effort between Brandywine Valley SPCA and 14 other local shelters and rescues.

Among the nonprofits participating are ACCT Philly, Animal Welfare Association and St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Center.

The event takes place Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Bob Carpenter Center at the University of Delaware.



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 4,000 animals into loving homes over the past three years.
