Pawsitive Alliance announced that 60 cats and dogs were adopted at their annual Bow Wow Meow Luau multi-shelter adoption event, which was held this year on July 16 at Marymoor Park in Redmond.

Staff and volunteers from eleven shelter and rescue organizations from across the state were onsite, turning an average Sunday into a tail-wagging good time. Pawsitive Alliance and Denny’s Pet World have partnered to co-host this event for the past five years.

The event had barely started when the first adoption took place. Princess had traveled all the way from Moses Lake looking to find someone to give her a safe and loving home, and she did.

“This fun and festive event is a great way to introduce people to some of the wonderful homeless cats and dogs in the region, who are in need of adoption,” said Amy Ferguson, Pawsitive Alliance Executive Director. “Pet overpopulation is still an enormous problem in Washington State. Pawsitive Alliance hosts multi-shelter adoption events to provide shelter animals additional opportunities to be adopted.”

Two of the event sponsors were also onsite to assist adopters and their new furry family members. Canine Behavior Center provided agility demonstrations and training and soon there were dogs of every size and shape jumping hurdles and scampering across elevated walkways. Petcurean, who has sponsored Bow Wow Meow Luau for several years, provided new adopters with bags of premium pet food specific to their new family member’s dietary needs so they can have a healthy start in their new home.
