FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – If you've been considering adopting a new four-legged family member, consider doing so at the PetSmart Charities adoption tent event this weekend.

From noon until 4 p.m. the PetSmart off of Maysville Road teamed up with the Allen County SPCA and local animal shelters seeking to find pets good homes.

Same-day adoptions for pre-approved applications will be offered and adopters who are not currently pre-approved are welcome to meet the animals and be approved on-site.

“It's fun for the dogs, they get to come out here for half of the day here today. It gets them some exercise and some socialization and hopefully it gets them a forever home while they're out here,” said Jessica Henry, Director of the Allen County SPCA.

Those adopters should bring verification of vaccinations for all current pets, and renters looking to adopt a pet should bring copies of leases that allow pets.

The event continues Sunday again from noon to 4 p.m.
