ORLANDO, Fla (Apr. 8, 2014) – Woof Gang Bakery, Your Neighborhood Pet Store, announces the first company-wide Adopt-a-Thon event to take place on Saturday, May 10, 2014, which also falls during National Pet Week. On May 10, Woof Gang Bakery stores nationwide will host in-store adoption events to support animal rescue organizations in their local areas. During this time and throughout the entire year, Woof Gang Bakery strives to help to raise awareness of the more than 6 million dogs and cats seeking “furever” homes across the country.

Numerous local animal welfare groups will have adorable pets available for adoption at 40 Woof Gang Bakery locations in the United States. Woof Gang Bakery stores will offer giveaways throughout the day and will send all adopted pets home with a “welcome home” bag. The event is an excellent opportunity for prospective pet owners to find their perfect match, whether they are looking for a dog, cat, puppy, kitten, mixed-breed or purebred to become a part of their family.

Together, with pet rescue groups, Woof Gang Bakery aims to increase awareness of shelter animals and their need for a second chance. In the weeks leading up to the May 10 Adopt-a-Thon event, Woof Gang Bakery stores will have donation drop boxes for food, treats and toys with these much-needed items going to local rescue groups.

In addition to meeting pets’ nutritional needs, Woof Gang Bakery carries stylish essentials, fashionable accessories, and a variety of toys and a wide range of doggie spa products.
