If you've ever worked at an animal shelter, you know all too well that managing space and resources is a daily struggle. There are just too many times when animals have to be put down simply because there is not enough space for them anymore, and the wave of incoming animals never seems to stop.
Thankfully for the staff at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, that's not a reality they will have to face this holiday season. All of their kennels are empty for the best possible reason - all of their cats and dogs were adopted into forever homes!
Here's what they had to say about their success on Facebook:
What happens when your last available dog gets adopted? Your staff and volunteers jump into the kennels to celebrate! We've adopted out 25 cats and 23 dogs so far during our #HomefortheHolidays promotion, and for the second day in a row, we've adopted out ALL of our available dogs! We'll have more dogs available later tonight or tomorrow. Keep those adoptions coming! #HappyTailsHappyHearts
Animal shelters are full of animals waiting to find a forever home they can give their love to. If you're thinking of getting a pet this holiday season, please think about skipping the pet stores and puppy mills, and adopt a rescue animal instead.
Be sure to SHARE this celebration with your family and friends.
