Event Details

Through our 15 local and national Mega® Adoption Events, we have placed nearly 16,000 homeless cats and dogs with loving families. Each one is truly an experience, with hundreds of homeless pets being chosen to join a family over one weekend. Plan to join the fun and find your new furry companion, or if you have a full house, join us as a volunteer for the event, or help spread the word to your family and friends! 

Hundreds of wonderful furry companions will be looking for their forever homes – big dogs, small dogs, senior pets, puppies, and kittens. The Mega® Adoption Event will be held at Bob Carpenter Center in Newark, Delaware. Choose and meet your potential future family member, then welcome them into your home on the spot.

Puppies, kittens, and small dogs get adopted quickly, so if you're looking to adopt a young or small animal, consider purchasing a Fast Pass (SOLD OUT) for early access Saturday morning before the official event opening time. Fast passes cost $75 and give access to up to five family members for one adoption. Fast Pass entry time is Saturday, June 15th from 8:30 - 10 a.m.

Adoption information
