As I mentioned previously, last weekend from July 15-17, Petfinder.com celebrated their 15th Birthday with a Big Birthday Adoption Event. The online adoption site, which features rescues and shelters nationwide and their adoptable pets, hoped to help 15,000 dogs, cats, bunnies, gerbils, horses, and other companion animals find loving homes during the three-day event.
Petfinder.com met their goal.
Asking affiliated shelters and rescues to check in with their adoption totals, the final tally was 15,700 animals adopted.
15,700 animals in loving homes!! That total blows my mind. None of those adoptions would have been possible without heightened awareness about the value of shelter and rescue animals and Petfinder.com.

Black and Orange’s 5th Annual Garage Sale was even featured on the Petfinder.com web site as one of the events going on over the weekend to celebrate Petfinder’s 15th Birthday. You can see that HERE.
We want to thank everyone who supported us during our garage sale. We raised almost $2500 to help the kitties. Our good friend, Vivian Opelt, also adopted two of her foster kitties, Andy and Billy, in to a great home over the birthday weekend due to their postings on Petfinder.com. We were able to add those two adoptions to the overall adoption count for Petfinder’s weekend. Hurrah!
Remember, when you are considering a new friend in your life, consider a shelter or rescue animal first and check out Petfinder.com to find a furry face near you!
