One of the dogs shows its pearly whites at Coldwell Banker Mason Morse's pet adoption weekend.

Coldwell Banker Mason Morse hosts pet adoption weekend in partnership with local animal shelters

Coldwell Banker Mason Morse Real Estate recently hosted its second annual pet adoption weekend joining hundreds of Coldwell Banker offices and animal shelters around the country for the Coldwell Banker “Homes for Dogs” National Adoption Weekend.

Held Oct. 13-14, the 2018 adoption weekend was a success as Coldwell Banker Mason Morse’s Aspen Snowmass, Carbondale and Glenwood Springs offices each participated and found new homes for five local pets. The individual offices partnered with local shelters Aspen Animal Shelter, Colorado Animal Rescue (CARE) and Rifle Animal Shelter in their goal of finding loving homes for their furry friends.

Coldwell Banker Real Estate launched its “Homes for Dogs Project” in 2015, helping 20,000 dogs find new homes in nine months. Following the Coldwell Banker network’s success, Coldwell Banker Mason Morse implemented its own local Pet Adoption Weekend, continuing its responsibility as a partner in the communities it serves.
