IVCBA, Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days are here!

Maddie’s Pet Project of Nevada is excited to announce Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days, happening Friday, June 11 and Saturday, June 12, 2021. This event’s funding is provided by the Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation, allowing for all adoption fees to be waived for dogs and cats at participating animal welfare organizations across Nevada.

One of the participating animal shelters in Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days is Pet Network in Incline Village, Nev. Pet Network Humane Society is a nonprofit animal shelter that is dedicated to saving and improving the lives of pets through rescue, adoption, and humane education programs.

Pet Network was founded in 1991 by a group of committed volunteers and has evolved from a grassroots foster network into a respected organization and facility with 17 employees, and over 100 volunteers and foster families. Since the beginning, the animal shelter has rescued and rehomed more than 10,000 animals in need – and today, the humane society continues to be a driving force for animal rescue and adoption in the Northern Nevada region.

Aside from being a part of the upcoming Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days this weekend, The Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation, who is an active sponsor for Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days, will be awarding $200 for each cat and dog that are adopted from Pet Network during the event. This generous donation will help offset the waiving of adoption fees and will help Pet Network with ongoing costs such as food, shelter, toys, and more for their shelter animals.

In the past three years that Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days have taken place, roughly 7,600 animals have found their forever homes. Overall, 50 animal welfare organizations, large and small, will be participating in this year’s Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days event.

To keep up with adoption statistics, they will be posted during the event for each participating animal welfare organization in real-time during the event’s days. To keep updated on adoption statistics, visit Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days website here: https://maddiespetprojectnevada.org/

Pet Network is excited to be a part of Maddie’s Pet Adoption Days, and currently has eight dogs and six cats available for adoption. Additional dogs and cats are also available for adoption through other participating animal welfare organizations, such as the Nevada Humane Society in Carson City, Nev. and Reno, Nev.

Visit Pet Network this Friday and Saturday to support Incline Village/Crystal Bay’s local animal welfare organization. Your furrrever friend is waiting!
