INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — If you've been looking to adopt a cat or dog, mark your calendar for the upcoming Indy Mega Adoption Event.

It returns to the Indiana State Fairgrounds June 22-23 from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. The event is free, but 150 attendees can get an early look at the animals Saturday by purchasing advance tickets online. Kids younger than 12 get early bird admission free with the purchase of an adult ticket.

More than 1,000 adoptable cats and dogs of all breeds, ages and sizes will be available from local shelters and rescue groups. Adoptions happy through each individual group. Adoption fees start at $30, and all animals are already fixed and microchipped. The best part: You'll be able to leave that day with your new furry friend.

Parking at the fairgrounds is $8 and not included in admission.
