INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Anyone looking to add a four-legged friend to your family, could find the pet they have been looking for Saturday or Sunday.

Thousands of cats and dogs of all breeds and sizes are going to be at the State Fairgrounds from 11-7 p.m.

It’s an event called Indy Mega Adoption.  Dozens of local rescue groups are taking part.

“The main goal is to completely empty out the kill shelters – those shelters that have to kill for time or space. We want to make sure that they go home completely empty-handed. it happened last time when we did it in June, we suspect it’ll happen again today,” said Megan Bennett, organizer.

Each adopted pet costs $30 and comes already spayed or neutered, vaccinated and micro-chipped.

It took only a few minutes for Sam and Katie Bruce of Indianapolis to find their new dog, Captain.

“It’s pretty awesome,” said Sam. “Excited to take him home.”
