Dozens of pets are getting to know their new families after a huge adoption event on Saturday.

The Valley Animal Center hosted its second annual Super Adoption in East Central Fresno. About a dozen shelters and rescues from across the area brought dogs and puppies together in one location, and many cats and kittens were available inside the facility.

Families could also visit a variety of vendors for helpful pet information, free gift bags and treats, a photo booth, face painting, and more.

Organizers say it feels great to see more than 70 animals find their forever homes.

"When you adopt a homeless pet, not only are you saving the life of the animal you adopt, you're also making room at the shelter for another animal, so you're really saving two lives," said Rosie Davenport with the Valley Animal Center. "The other great thing about rescuing a shelter pet is they seem to be almost grateful. When you take a shelter pet home, they know they've escaped the snare of living in a shelter, and they're really happy to be in your home for the rest of their life."

ABC 30 was a proud sponsor of Super Adoption, and Action News anchor Sara Sandrik had the honor of serving as emcee.
