Marion Fiore, organizer of the event
How very cool! 15 dogs and cats found new homes during 'Bark Avenue Adopt-A-Thon' held in Carroll Park this past Sunday. Organized by Marion Fiore, pictured above, the event brought together several adoption organizations, as well as non-for-profits that aid shelter dogs and cats.
Besides drawing a huge crowd, the Adopt-A-Thon highlighted the wonderful work of the volunteers who donate their time to rescue these animals in order to find them new owners.
The dogs and cats that were brought to the park on Sunday had received all their vaccinations and had been neutered.
Of course you can contact these organizations at any time if you wish to open your home to a pet or if you would like to make a donation to support their work.
