Comcast is teaming up with Hallmark Channel’s Adoption Ever After pet adoption initiative to help Houston-area shelter pets find forever homes.
The Adoption Ever After initiative is designed to educate the public about the many rewards of pet adoption in hopes of inspiring viewers to open their homes and hearts to shelter pets. It aims to dismantle common misconceptions about shelter animals, provide resources, and ultimately put an end to this country’s epidemic of pet homelessness.
“Comcast is committed to inspiring our customers, audiences, and employees to make a positive impact, so it makes sense to partner with the Hallmark Channel for such an important initiative,” shared Michael Bybee, external communications director, Comcast Houston Region.
This “one-of-a-kind” adoption event will take place Saturday, October 12, between 11a.m. – 3p.m. at the XFINITY Store located on S. Mason Rd. BARC Animal Shelter will be on site to assist interested adopters with the application process and answer questions. All dogs, cats and kittens over 5 months old can be adopted for $20; and puppies 4 months and under $75. Adopters must be 18 or older and provide a valid form of identification.
Local Hero Dog, Gus, will make a special appearance and be available for a meet & greet and photo opportunity from 12 – 1:30p.m.
