Saturday’s dog adoption event was a howling success.
Ten dogs were adopted during “No Paws Left Behind,” a dog adoption event at Enger Tire Center on Claremont Avenue. It was the first time for the event, which was conceived by County Dog Shelter volunteers as a way to get dogs and people together in a casual setting.
The volunteers came up with the idea for two reasons: The shelter, which is funded mostly through dog and kennel license fees, is closed Saturdays due to budgetary concerns, so people who work during the week can’t make it down there to adopt. The volunteers also believe that, if the people get a chance to visit with the dogs outside the kennel environment, they would see them in a more positive light.
