Rover Rescue adoption event today

Published: Saturday, July 6, 2013 5:30 a.m.CDT

The DeKalb PetSmart will host a Rover Rescue Adoption Event from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at which families can meet some of the more than 73 adoptable dogs currently available. Rover Rescue volunteers also will be on-hand to discuss both the dogs as well as the Rover Rescue volunteer opportunities available in DeKalb County.

Rover Rescue is a nonprofit, all-volunteer canine rescue group that works with shelters throughout the Midwest to rescue dogs that will be otherwise euthanized due to shelter capacity limitations. The dogs are vetted, spayed/neutered, then placed in volunteer foster homes until a qualified adoptive home can be found.

To adopt a dog from Rover Rescue, applicants must complete an interview and application process that includes meeting both the general qualifications of Rover Rescue and the dog-specific qualifications determined by the dog’s foster volunteer. If the application is approved, there is a $200 adoption fee.

Future Rover Rescue Adoption Events will take place at the DeKalb PetSmart from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Aug. 3, Aug. 24, Sept. 14, Oct. 5, Oct. 26, Nov. 16, Dec. 7 and Dec. 28. The DeKalb PetSmart is located at 2512 Sycamore Road in DeKalb.
