Two local animal rescue groups will host an adoption event in Baldwin July 16 and 17 in honor of Petfinder.com’s 15th birthday.
The adoption event will be held at the Petco store, on Sunrise Highway at Milburn Avenue in Baldwin, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days. The non-profit organizations New Beginnings Cat and Kitten Adoptions Inc. and In Our Hands Dog Rescue Inc. expect to offer dozens of homeless cats and dogs for adoption.
“The idea is to get as many adoptions as possible, as well as hopefully raise some funds as somewhat of a bonus,” said Shelley Galfin, founder of the cat rescue group.
Petfinder is an online, searchable database of animals that need homes and directory of more than 13,000 animal shelters and adoption organizations across the United States, Canada and Mexico. Organizations maintain their own home pages and available-pet databases.
