The “Reed Nissan Pet Rescue Project 90-Day Adopt-a-Thon” officially kicked off its second year with the goal once again to help find 2,000 cats and dogs FURever homes.
Reed Nissan, Reed Nissan Clermont and the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando (PAGO) have come together for the second time to host the 90-Day Adopt-a-Thon in hopes of exceeding their success in 2014. Reed Nissan will be holding adoption events at both of their locations—Reed Nissan in Orlando and Reed Nissan Clermont—during the 90-day span.
Reed Nissan is a longtime supporter of the Pet Alliance and the organization’s two shelters. Currently, the dealership donates a portion of sales from each car sold to PAGO, a pledge that raised more than $100,000 in 2014. Reed Nissan’s donation directly supported projects dedicated to the safety and well-being of the animals, including play yard sun shades—critical for the animals enduring the hot Florida weather.
Last year’s first 90-day Adopt-a-Thon resulted in adoptions of over 2,000 dogs, cats and other pets from October through December. The 2015 Adopt-a-Thon encourages and challenges the central Florida community to adopt a pet in need of a safe and happy FURever home.
“We are ecstatic to be working with our friends at the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando as sponsor of another 90-Day Adopt-a-Thon,” said Aaron Hill, General Manager of Reed Nissan and Reed Nissan Clermont. “Last year our community responded overwhelmingly to the importance of finding families for thousands of pets through their support of this event.”
“Our Reed Nissan associates at both of our stores are excited to help the Pet Alliance find even more FURever homes for these animals in need.”
The Reed Nissan Pet Rescue 90-day Adopt-a-Thon officially kicked off October 1 and will continue through December 31. The dealer encourages the community to visit the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando adoption centers over the 90-day span, or visit Reed Nissan or Reed Nissan Clermont during one of their upcoming on-site adoption events.
Fees will be waived for animals adopted at the dealerships AND at both Pet Alliance shelter locations during the dates and times listed below:
October 18: 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., Reed Nissan in Orlando – 3776 West Colonial Drive, Orlando, FL
November 15: 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. Reed Nissan Clermont – 16005 State Road 50, Clermont, FL
“To see a homeless dog or cat experience his or her ride home from the animal shelter to a new FURever home is the best feeling ever. It’s what we at the Pet Alliance want to see for every single pet,” said Helen Preston, Signature Events Manager and Outreach for PAGO. “We know that together with Reed Nissan, we can help 2,000 pets make their way Home for the Holidays.”
