If you're working in an animal shelter, the problem of space and resources is a constant struggle. The sad reality is that many animals are put down because shelters can only dedicate so many resources to these poor pets in order to ensure the survival of other incoming animals.
But the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region doesn't have to face that sad reality this holiday season. Their kennels are empty for an awesome reason: because people adopted all of their remaining cats and dogs this Christmas.
And they thought what better way to celebrate than inside the empty kennels themselves?
They wrote 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 fill up fast though, so if you're thinking about getting you or a loved one a pet this Christmas, forego expensive pet mills with questionable ethics and pick yourself up a rescue dog. (h/t 9news)
