Super Adoption at Fresno State helps homeless animals

FRESNO, Calif.

More than 20 Valley shelters and rescue groups took their adoptable animals to O'neil Park - so families had the opportunity to see more than 600 cats and dogs all in the same spot.

The goal of super adoption is to both find homes for the animals - and also raise awareness about the Valley's pet overpopulation crisis.

"I think they recognize the importance of adopting a pet versus buying one from a breeder. We have tons of homeless animals dying to have a new home, literally. We really have to get people to adopt, not buy," kirsten gross said.

Organizers say 151 dogs and 28 cats found new homes Saturday.
