Day at ADOPT-A-THON 2013

Day at ADOPT-A-THON 2013

Over 40 animal rescue groups gathered at Jack London Square in Oakland, CA today for the East Bay SPCA’s 5th Annual ADOPT-A-THON.

Booths lined the walkway along the waterfront as visitors greeted around 350 animals looking for loving, forever homes.  Among the animals were dogs, cats, rabbits, birds, rats, reptiles, and guinea pigs.  The overall theme and feeling of the event was a celebration of second chances and emphasis of adoption as a first choice.

Throughout the afternoon, dog trainers held demos on trick training and behavior modification.  One of our favorite demos was a dog who was trained to pick up dollars and put them in a donation jar.  Even dogs can lead by example.

There was also a large fenced in agility course.  Different dog breeds tested their skills jumping bars, weaving between posts, and rushing through tunnels.

PROS (Pug Rescue of Sacramento) had a large booth set up in the center of the event with a shaded x-pen full of pugs.  In total, there were 4 adoptable pugs and a few other pug friends and pug rescue alumni filling out the booth.  Kento and Moka were among them as we spent the day volunteering with PROS.

It was a fulfilling day ending with two completely wiped out pugs snoring on the couch.
