Press Release (ePRNews.com) - HOLIDAY, Fla. - May 18, 2017 - In partnership for the third year with Morgan Auto Group, The New Barker presents JUST ONE DAY pet adopt-a-thon on Sunday, June 11, 2017 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 11 Morgan Auto Group dealerships located throughout Tampa Bay and central Florida. Every day, around 10,000 adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters across the United States. JUST ONE DAY is an annual, national movement that brings attention to these high numbers and promotes pet adoptions.
Volunteers and adoptable dogs from more than 20 area rescue groups, shelters and animal services will be participating during the event, introducing families to adoptable pets and processing pet adoption applications.
“We’re hosting the JUST ONE DAY adopt-a-thon indoors at the invitation of 11 Morgan Auto Group dealerships so that our guests, volunteers—and especially our animals—will be cooler and more comfortable,” said Anna Cooke, editor of The New Barker.
“My dogs Zeus and Athena both came from local animal shelters, and they have been wonderful companions,” said John Marazzi, managing partner of Brandon Honda and Sun Toyota. “We at Morgan Auto Group are committed to bringing awareness to the problem of overcrowding at animal shelters and making pet adoptions readily available in our surrounding communities.”
