Pet lovers, clear your schedule for Saturday. Every local pet adoption agency you can think of (from the Pima Animal Care Center to Any Rat Rescue) will be at the Tucson Expo Center (3750 E. Irvington Road) for Adopt Love, Adopt Local. 
More than 30,000 pets enter our local shelters each year, but sadly all may not find a new home. Adopt Love Adopt Local, an initiative of the Pima Alliance for Animal Welfare, aims to solve this issue by connecting adopters with a collaboration of local shelters and rescues to increase adoptions and awareness. Through research, education, and an annual, community-wide adoption event we intend for every displaced companion pet in our community, to have a happy, forever home.

The event is this Saturday, April 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Organizers ask that you do not bring your pets to the event. You can get a look at the full list of exhibitors on the Adopt Love, Adopt Local website
