Petco stores around the nation, including those throughout the East Valley, are hosting the 2nd Annual Adoption Reunion the weekend of Oct. 6-7 to help find loving homes for sheltered animals.

More than 63 percent of households have a pet and enjoy their companionship, however, only 10 percent to 20 percent of abandoned pets are rescued, according to a Petco news release.

The events will include a mega adoption event and many family-friendly activities. Local shelters will be in attendance with numerous pets available for adoption. Prospective adoptees can receive tips on choosing the right pet and tips for new pet parents.

It is estimated that between 5 to 7 million pets enter shelters each year and that more than half will be euthanized, according to information from Petco, which is based in San Diego.
