North Shore Animal League’s Big Event
Photographs by Natalie Siebers
Nearly five hundred animals found new homes at North Shore Animal League America’s annual 36-hour Global Pet Adoptathon in early May.
The event was held on May 6th and 7th. Adopters got to choose from hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens. The first one hundred approved adoptions were free thanks to the event’s sponsor, Purina.
Thousands of people came, some started lining up in the middle of the night!
Camren Bicondova, who plays the teenage version of Catwoman on the FOX television show, Gotham, declared the event open. Camren is big supporter of North Shore Animal League America and an adopter herself. If you want to support North Shore Animal League America like Camren, click here to donate.

I fell in love the guy below. If we were living in New York City, I probably would’ve applied to take him home with me.
The fellow below is heading home!
