The Humane Society of Greater Akron placed 133 dogs and cats in homes last month from its new shelter in Twinsburg Township. It was the highest monthly total of the year. A $5 cat-adoption event attracted adopters of 37 cats. “We would really like to thank the community for opening their homes and choosing to rescue this holiday season,” adoptions director Kristin Branagan said. “With a large quantity of animals at our shelter, it was great to see so many get a family for the holidays.” Fundraising continues to finish paying for the facility at 7996 Darrow Road; summithumane.org, 330-487-0333.
