Super Adoption Day with ARF

July 13 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join us on Saturday, July 13 from 11am-2pm for a Superpower Dog adoption event! We have partnered with Animal Rescue Foundation in Theodore, Alabama (http://www.animalrescuemobile.org/) to help find forever homes for our furry friends.

This event is in conjunction with our summer IMAX Dome feature film, Superpower Dogs. Those who finalize the adoption process with ARF will also get a FREE one year family membership to the Exploreum! (We will also be giving out some SUPER awesome swag from the Superpower Dogs film and PEDIGREE Foundation as well!)

The event will take place in the Exploreum atrium in an effort to avoid any potential inclement weather and, of course, to keep the pups out of the summer heat.

Guests can enter the adoption area in the atrium for free but if they decide to visit the exhibits or IMAX they can get in for a discounted $10 combo price for both. Exploreum members can attend the event and exhibits for free (IMAX additional fee).

More about ARF:

ARF is a non-profit, adoption guarantee animal shelter serving the Greater Mobile area. We believe every life matters. Our mission is to rescue homeless and abandoned dogs and cats from overcrowded animal shelters and provide the care they need, until we can place them in permanent, loving homes. Through outreach and education, we advocate for animals in our community and are committed to bringing about a time when there are no more homeless pets. We have been serving the community since 1995.

More about Superpower Dogs:

Join an immersive IMAX adventure to experience the life-saving superpowers and extraordinary bravery of some of the world’s most amazing dogs. In this inspiring true story narrated by Chris Evans, our best friends are also real-life superheroes. Journey around the globe to meet remarkable dogs who save lives and discover the powerful bond they share with their human partners.

Follow ‘Halo’, a rookie puppy training to join one of the most elite disaster response teams in America. Meet ‘Henry’ , an avalanche rescue expert in the mountains of British Columbia, ‘Reef’, a Newfoundland lifeguard with the Italian coastguard, ‘Ricochet’ , a Californian surf legend helping people with special needs, and the Bloodhound brothers, ‘Tipper and Tony’, who are leading the fight to save endangered species in Africa.

As we discover the incredible abilities of dogs and the astonishing science behind their superpowers, we’ll never look at our best friends the same way again!
