The Animal Rescue League of Berks County (ARL) will host a Sponsored Adoption Weekend from Friday, June 28, through Sunday, June 30. All available animals will be free to adopt during the event.

Adopters must go through the ARL’s regular procedures to adopt, including the completion of an adoption profile and speaking with an adoption counselor to ensure that the pet they select is a good match for their home, family, and lifestyle. They are also encouraged to bring their family members to meet their new pet at the time of adoption and to bring their dogs from home to meet and greet other dogs at the shelter. Dog adopters will also want to bring cash or a check for a $9.20 dog license, which is required at the time of adoption under PA law. Adopters will also want to bring a cat carrier (or they can purchase one from the ARL for $5) and a dog collar and leash (or they can purchase one from the ARL).

The ARL will be open on Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; no appointments are necessary. A virtual “line” is set up at www.berksarl.org/hello, where guests can check in when they arrive at the shelter. All guests can check their place in line and be notified by text when it’s their turn to work with an adoption counselor.

BrunoLuvuTilda, and Antumbra are available for adoption as of Tuesday, June 25.
