HSRC holds adoption event at Pet Supplies Plus

Posted:
BECKLEY, WV (WVVA) -

An adoption event took place outside Pet Supplies plus in Beckley Saturday.

Volunteers from the Humane Society of Raleigh County were there with five dogs and five kittens, all available for adoption.

Volunteers say getting out in public with the animals is an enriching experience for both them and their four legged friends.

"We want to get the dogs out of the shelter,” Jessica Stegmeir said. “We want people to see them in a light where they are playing, and they're in a kid's lap, or they're eating snacks and just having a great time. I think it's important for people to see that these dogs are different when they come out of the shelter."

Saturday's event went from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. “So if you missed out on the fun, the Humane Society of Raleigh County wants everyone to know about its upcoming "Spirit Night.”

It's this Thursday at the Beaver Wendy's from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.

The shelter is also looking for volunteers to help walk dogs. Those interested should contact the Humane Society of Raleigh County, and dog and cat food donations are always needed.
