Lots of furry friends are looking for good homes during a free pet adoption event underway in Madison this weekend.

Dane County Humane Society spokeswoman Gayle Viney said most dogs had already been adopted by Saturday afternoon but there were still plenty of cats available to good homes at no cost. 

The adoption fees are being waived as part of a two-day event sponsored by Maddie's Fund. 

DCHS is one of five area rescues including DC Friends of Ferals, Angels Wish, the Humane Society of Southern WI and Friends of Noah who are participating in the nationwide event.

People are invited to visit the animals at the DCHS main shelter, 5132 Voges Road, or the Adoption Center West, 7474 Mineral Point Road.

Viney said doors opened Saturday at 10 a.m. and will continue through 8 p.m. Sunday event hours are from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Potential families will still be screened so pets go to qualified homes, organizers said.
