Nine animal shelters came together Saturday in Duluth to participate in a mega adopt-a-thon.
The second annual event is put on by Animal Allies, thanks to a $5,000 grant from Petco Foundation.
Petco's adoption captain, Kathryn Schottmuller, said the adopt-a-thon is a great way for people to find the right pet for them.
"It means that more pets find their forever homes," she said. "And it means that the people who are wanting to adopt animals can come out here and they really do have a choice of many multiple different personalities and fits for the right dogs and right cats."
