Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC hosts an Adopt-A-Palooz

Posted: Updated:
BOARDMAN, Ohio -

For the second year, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC in Boardman hosted an Adopt-A-Palooza event.

The event is aimed at helping promote pet rescue groups from across the Mahoning Valley.

People could see some of the dogs and cats available for adoption. Organizers say it's a win-win.

"We thought what better way than to partner with some local shelter groups and not only throw an event that was fun for the community, but throw one that did some good," said Chris Anderson, Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC.

“Putting events on like this for us where we can show up, show off our adoptables, it helps us out tremendously," said Jason Cooke, Animal Charity Humane Society.

Ten rescue groups were represented at the event. There was also a canine obedience demonstration.
