Adoptably Soft

Wednesday, February 17, 2010

Girl Scout Alina Bemish sits in the dog cage with Spot at Family Video during the Humane Society's adopt-a-thon. Five cats and two dogs were given good homes because of the event. Bemish's Girl Scout troop assisted the Humane Society as part of a community service project. "We consider the event a complete success," said Lynn Bohmer HSPC president. "Even the animals that did not get adopted had an afternoon filled with love and attention." Bohmer noted the adopted dog featured in Tuesday's Banner Graphic named Krissy had become quite depressed. But on Saturday, she was never a happier dog then when at Family Video and later being adopted by the Livesay family of Greencastle. As a result of the adopt-a-thon, many potential adopters will be returning to HSPC this week to meet their potential pets. [Order this photo]

We should all be 'shareing God's blessings....in adopting an animal you are giving of yourself...

providing love to an otherwise forgotten of one of

God's creatures...the humane shelter can only keep

an animal for so m any days (the way I understand it) then it must be destroyed- (put to sleep)

Thank you to the Putnam County Humane Shelter for

your dedication and the dedication of the volunteers. God Bless you.

Putnam County shelter does NOT "destroy" for space.

They are over crowded now. Dogs sleeping where space can be found. Some animals have been there for months and will continue to be there until the right home comes along.
