While it took all my self control not to apply to bring any of these beautiful dogs home, the good news for dozens of dogs this weekend was that many people travelled from throughout the region to adopt.
The largest pet adoption event series in New England took place in an empty storefront next to Farmington Petco this past weekend. Petco and the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Connecticut organized Shelter Dogs Rock Farmington. Over 200 dogs were brought into the temporary kennel at the site and 137 had been adopted by the close at 5 p.m. Sunday.
