About Best Friends Super Adoptions
Organized by Best Friends, a Super Adoption is a big event — a coming together of dozens of shelters and rescue groups in a fun, festival-like atmosphere to find homes for hundreds of animals during a single weekend. The participating shelters and rescue groups are partners of Best Friends through our No More Homeless Pets Network. Held twice a year, during the spring and winter, Best Friends Super Adoptions are a great way to meet hundreds of adoptable animals in one place.
What should I expect?
Expect to have a lot of fun, and to meet a huge number of adorable, adoptable animals. Each participating rescue group or shelter at the event has its own adoption application, interview process and adoption fee structure. Adoption fees help cover costs such as spay/neuter, vaccinations and other medical needs.
Please note that all participating shelters and many of the participating rescue groups offer same-day adoptions, but some groups require home checks as part of the application process. Potential adopters should come prepared with a valid form of identification and payment. If you’re a renter, it’s a good idea to have a letter from your landlord stating that you are allowed to have a pet.
