East County Events: May 31 and Beyond


Here is a look at some of the local events within East Contra Costa County which clearly belongs to the cats and dogs as Maddies Fund is set for Saturday which is offering free pet adoptions to qualified homes.

While we have included flyers below, here is a link to all locations participating and rescues. Maddie’s® Pet Adoption Days in 2013 was a huge success with a total of 8,432 animals found loving homes during the event – a far cry from the original estimate of 5,000 adoptions!
