SPCA Update — Adopt-A-Thon Makes Front Page News!!!
If you’ve been following the posts on this blog — which everyone should! — you’d know about the preview story I reported on last week for KCRA-TV to spread the word about the Sacramento SPCA Adopt-A-Thon held starting the following day. The goal was to open the doors for 12 hours on Friday, November 11, to adopt out 111 pets — dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, mice — into homes for the holidays. On a good day the SPCA adopts out 25-30 pets a day so this was a lofty goal.
I wound up being unprecedented. A huge turn out. The reports I got from SPCA director Leslie Korrine at the end of the day was that they adopted out 127 pets.
Apparently, they brought in needy animals from shelters around the city and turned the adoption day into an adoption weekend.
Today, Tuesday, November 15, 2011, I opened up the morning Sacramento Bee newspaper to find this story on the front page.
