"Veterans Day pet adoption bargains a huge success for Sacramento SPCA"

What do you get when you advertise a special low pet adoption price of $11.11? You get a line 400 deep, you empty out the shelter and you place over 200 animals into new homes in just one day.
 
Overpopulation? Not enought homes? Baloney!
At least 400 people were standing in line at the agency when it opened Friday morning, Johnson said. Some waited for seven hours as backed-up staffers hustled to complete paperwork. The SPCA finished 126 adoptions Friday, emptying the facility. Then the agency began pulling animals from the county and city shelters, and extended the promotion through Sunday.
"We were overwhelmed," said Johnson. "We were turning people away at 7 p.m. because we literally had adopted out everything in the shelter. That has never happened before."
