Two Bostons Pet Boutique will once again be hosting a September Adopt-A-Thon on September 27th from Noon until 3:00 p.m. This will be the 5th anniversary of the Adopt-A-Thons put on by Two Bostons.
The event will take place at their Springbrook Mall location in the Pavilion located at 2523 West 75th Street in Naperville. This year’s event will feature more than 15 area shelter and rescue organizations which will have their adoptable pets right there onsite!
Since this year marks the 5th Anniversary of this event, there will be other key highlights to choose from such as an onsite “Nickel Pool,” refreshments, a prize wheel to spin, raffle gift baskets to try for and an inflatable bounce house for the kids to enjoy. All proceeds from this special event will be donated to the participating shelters and rescue organizations. In fact, each of the three stores has been collecting nickels all month long in their various locations so to get the most bang for the buck.
Everyone wants to get in on the action so various community participants are scheduled to attend. This includes the Naperville Public Library, the Naperville Fire Department Whole Foods of Naperville, Meatheads and Road Runner Sports.
Two Bostons is adamant about participating in the communities in which they serve, so as AdreAnne Tesene, owner and co-founder of Two Bostons states, “It’s all about partnering with community shelters; uniting homeless pets with loving, permanent families.” That is why so many other organizations within the Naperville community want to participate!
Two Bostons is the area’s leading pet care and wellness resource. They carry specially-selected dog and cat foods, products and supplements at each of their three west suburban locations.
Just like this event, Two Bostons believes in family as well as community, so each of their events is family oriented – this includes the dog! Personal dogs are invited as long as they come on a standard leash and are crowd-friendly.
“The American Humane Association estimates that this country’s animal shelters currently care for eight million dogs and cats annually,” notes AdreAnne. “Of this staggering number, nearly four million are needlessly euthanized every single year according to the Humane Society of the United States. To put that figure in perspective, the entire state of Iowa – where my husband and I were raised – has a population of roughly 3.074 million people. The ASPCA notes that fully 25% of shelter dogs are actually purebred – yet it also approximates that five in 10 dogs and seven in 10 cats are euthanized in shelters annually, simply because nobody is there to adopt them.”
Mrs. Tesene continues, “At Two Bostons, our mission is improving the lives of people and pets. Adopt-A-Rama is all about partnering with community shelter and rescue groups to help unite deserving, homeless companion animals with loving, permanent families.”
