Rescues on the Runway Recap: Almost Fifty Pets Adopted!

The Maine Mall hosted Rescues on the Runway, an animal adoption event that featured a runway of adoptable pets held by rescue volunteers. Shoppers were delighted to meet dozens of cats, dogs, even a miniature pony, volunteers scurried to get free runway makeovers donated by AVEDA, and rescues could barely keep up with the lines of families who came specifically to adopt a pet. Within two hours, all of the 16 adorable puppies and kittens had been spoken for, but adult dogs weren't left out! By day's end, thirty-two adult cats and dogs were adopted. This is only a partial reflection of the event's impact since four out of the nine rescues present have prospective pet owners complete additional steps before officially releasing the animals. Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland shared that the day initiated the placement process for nine families, and Tall Tail Beagle Rescue had received ten follow up inquiries by email before their volunteers had left the parking lot. With accolades already being received from all sides, The Maine Mall is considering making this heart-warming event a biannual affair.
