“What happens when your last available dog gets adopted? Your staff and volunteers jump into the kennels to celebrate!” one happy animal shelter staff member posted on Monday. The Humane Society Of The Pikes Region in Colorado launched a very successful adoption campaign titled “Bring Them Home For The Holidays”. They made sure adoption fees are waived on all cats and dogs 5 years and up, for the period starting 18 December through New Year’s Eve. This made it more attractive for those considering adopting a pooch or a kitty, and gave pets a Christmas miracle of a loving forever home. This is something to celebrate indeed, knowing that 31 percent of dogs in shelters end up being euthanized.
According to the shelter, they adopted out 25 cats and 23 dogs as of Monday, but the kindhearted staff and volunteers won’t be stopping anytime soon. “We’ll have more dogs available later tonight or tomorrow. Keep those adoptions coming!”.
