ORLANDO, Fla (May 27, 2014) – Dozens of dogs and cats found their “fur-ever” homes during Woof Gang Bakery’s first company-wide Adopt-a-Thon event held on May 10. The event, held in collaboration with more than 70 local animal adoption groups, was hosted at Woof Gang Bakery stores across the United States. The results were “pawsitively” successful with 66 dogs and cats placed in new homes, with another 26 adoption applications in progress.
Participating animal rescue organization received donations, including nearly 1,800 total pounds of pet food, $5,800 in other donations such as treats, toys and accessories, and $600 in grooming services. In addition, several thousand dollars of pet food, products and veterinary services by Woof Gang Bakery customers, Dog for Dog and other local businesses were donated.
With more than 6 million dogs and cats seeking “fur-ever” homes across the country, the event was an excellent opportunity for prospective pet owners to find their perfect match. Adoptions ranged from a rescued Maltese puppy in Plano, Texas to a 15-year-old blind poodle in Sarasota, Fla. to a large breed mastiff mixed-breed puppy from Wilmington, N.C.
