A mega pet adoption event will take place on Sun, Nov 3, from noon to 5 p.m., on the front lawn of B’nai Zion Temple, 245 Southfield Road, says Susan Gross.

Billed as the Adopt-A-Pup Pop-Up Shop, the event will showcase adoptable animals from Animal Welfare Inc., Dixieland Dog Rescue, the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, Pet Savers, Two Girls Dog Rescue, Friends of Bossier City Animal Control, Caddo Parish Animal Shelter, and Shreveport Bossier Animal Rescue.

Additional groups will be on hand to share information on a host of animal-related issues. Robinson’s Rescue will let the public know about its low-cost spay/neuter services. Shreveport Dog Park Alliance, working to build a park where dogs can romp off-leash, will be present. And so will Colorado Citizens for Canine Welfare, a premiere group in the fight against puppy mills.

Several groups whose purpose is to raise money for animal welfare/rescue—the Krewe of Barkus and Meoux, Artists for Rescue, and Rescue Chocolate—will also participate.

Organizer Susan Gross said she hopes a lot of potential adopters turn up to greet all the dogs in need of a permanent home. “Shelter dogs make wonderful additions to your family,” she said.

Admission to the Pop-Up Shop is free, and families are welcome. If canine family members attend, they must be leashed and picked-up afterwards.
