HOUSTON – Petco Love, BOBS of Sketchers and several Houston-based animal welfare organizations are teaming up for a mega adoption event in September.
More than 1,000 pets will be featured at the event scheduled for September 3-4 at the George R. Brown Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
“Petco Love and BOBS from Skechers National Mega-Adoption Program are returning to help shelters in Houston and beyond. Previous events in other cities and states like Dallas, New York, Cincinnati, Pennsylvania, Delaware and South Carolina, have resulted in over 38,000 adoptions. Petco Love is striving to reach 40,000 adoptions by the end of this event in Houston. With only 30% of pet homes acquiring their pets from shelters, these events are part of a larger mission: to encourage pet-friendly homes to consider adopting pets,” says the press release.
Organizers said a $35 adoption fee applies to all animals and includes neutering, microchipping and age-appropriate pet vaccines. Adopters will need to bring a carrier for a cat (cardboard carriers will be available for purchase), or a leash and collar for a dog (also available for purchase).

“As you walk through the doors, you feel the excitement and the anticipation because, at the end of the day, the lives of so many pets and people are about to change and all for the better” said Petco Love President Susanne Kogut. “There is also the joy felt by the dedicated shelter workers who work tirelessly to save these pets – these events are truly about filling the Houston community with love – unconditional love for pets.”
