ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – If you’re looking for a furry friend to welcome to your household,  Better Together is an adoption event featuring dozens of adoptable pets from 20 local-area shelters and rescue organizations!

Purina Pet Welfare Team Libby Davidson and president and executive director of APA Adoption Center Sarah Javier brought in some pets ready to be adopted from the APA Adoption Center.

For any adoption made at the event, Purina has offered to subsidize $50 toward individual adoption fees.

Last year, more than 2,000 people attended the inaugural Purina ‘Better Together’ adoption event where 47 cats and dogs were adopted.

Better Together will be Saturday October 15th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The event is part of Purina`s ‘Consider A Shelter Pet’ campaign, a campaign that showcases the beauty and personality of shelter pets.

Currently only 27 percent of household pets nationwide – and 40 percent locally – come from shelters, due mostly to common misperceptions about the behavior, health and age of shelter pets.

Join Purina and APA Adoption Center to help some shelter pets find their home.
