Foothills Animal Rescue adoption event, May 31-June 1

Staff Report~ 5/28/2014

SCOTTSDALE – Foothills Animal Rescue is being featured at a two-day free pet adoption event on Saturday, May 31 and Sunday, June 1.

The fifth annual Maddie’s® Adoption Days is a two-day event offering free pet adoptions to qualified homes. They aim to place 10,000 dogs and cats across the country in loving forever homes.

 Maddie’s Fund®, a family foundation inspired by a Miniature Schnauzer named Maddie, is financing and organizing this event to find homes for 10,000 animals across the country.  More than 200 shelters and rescue groups in Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, New York, Nevada, Vermont, Virginia, and Wisconsin will participate, including Foothills Animal Rescue and 13 other rescue organizations in Maricopa County. To date, Maddie’s Fund has awarded $11.4 million to participating shelters and rescue groups to treat and rehabilitate senior pets and those with minor medical conditions – animals who most likely otherwise would have been euthanized.
