Super Adoption Day with Dixie Adoptables
June 8 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Join us on Saturday, June 8 from 11am-2pm for our first Superpower Dog adoption event!
We have partnered with Dixie Adoptables At Lucedale Animal Shelter in Lucedale, Mississippi (http://dixieadoptables.org) to help find forever homes for our furry friends. This event is in conjunction with our summer IMAX Dome feature film, Superpower Dogs. We will be giving away various swag from the film and more! Those who finalize the adoption process with Dixie Adoptables 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).
Dixie Adoptables is a full service no-kill animal shelter for residents of the city of Lucedale. Their goal is to house, feed, and provide medical care to any stray, abandoned, or surrendered animals until a new suitable home can be found for them.
As of October 1, 2016, the shelter is a local 501 (c) (3) nonprofit animal rescue located at 234 Beaver Dam Rd. Lucedale, MS 39452.
