"Think Adoption First"

Thanks for visiting the MEGA PET ADOPTION page.

For the past 24 years the slogan “THINK ADOPTION FIRST” has been

one of the main messages of the ALL AMERICAN COLUMBUS PET EXPO. 

If you have the available means, please consider donating or adopting from the rescues below. They will be facing a difficult time financially with all of their animals they take care of.

The list below includes local and national organizations that you can contact if you are looking to rescue a pet to make them part of your family. Some of them will be at the show with pets that are available for adoption. You will be able to visit with them and the groups and decide if you have found your new best friend. Please share this list with your friends and remember the only true way to stop the over-population and homeless pet problem is to spay and neuter.
