Humane Society hosts adorable March Madness-inspired adoption tournament

Who says only humans can participate in March Madness?

The Pasadena Humane Society and SPCA is preparing a different kind of bracket with their March Madness Adoption Tournament. It began Monday, March 14 and will end when the last animal is adopted!

68 animals, including dogs and cats, will don the name of a competing school. As the pets find their forever home, the ones still at the humane society will remain in the competition. The last animal remaining will be crowned the winner. "The winning pet's new family will receive a $50 gift certificate to the Pasadena Humane Society good at the Shelter Shop or for training classes, as well as a special prize basket filled with goodies," Pasadena Humane Society said in an emailed statement.

"Get ready to cheer on your favorite team and show support for the animals at the Pasadena Humane Society," says Julie Bank, President/CEO. "Whether you choose to adopt a pet or sponsor one, you are helping to make a difference in the life of an animal in need."

The Pasadena Humane Society is asking for donations to help sponsor adoptions. According to the humane society, the $150 fee subsidizes the pet's adoption fee, spay/neuter surgery, microchip and vaccines.

If you're close by to the Pasadena Humane Society at 361 S. Raymond Avenue, feel free to get in on the action. It will be open during normal adoption hours, Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and, Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
