Little Dogs, Big Day

People were already lining up at 8:00am this morning to adopt the dogs that were on the news yesterday. By the time we opened at 10:00am there was a huge crowd. We started handing out numbers to everyone who had lined up and began introducing them to the dogs that were available today. Only 15 dogs and puppies out of the 55 that we took in were ready to go. The rest still need veterinary care or to be spayed or neutered. All of the dogs that were available today were adopted, but more will be ready tomorrow so we hope to find homes for all of them.
There are also 4 litters of puppies still nursing from their mothers. Those puppies will need about 6-8 weeks in foster care before they are ready to go. Our staff and volunteers have been running non-stop for two days to get these little guys ready and cared for.
A special thanks to Chiloe from the Animal House for coming in early this morning to groom some of the dogs that were in desperate need of a little TLC.
