Animal Shelter Celebrates Empty Kennels After Finding Homes for All of Its Dogs

Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region Animal Shelter Christmas Adoptions

Every Christmas season, animal shelters have one goal: to give each of their rescues a home for the holidays. Through special campaigns and festive events, refuges are often able to re-home many of their animals in need. For the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region, a Colorado shelter, this year has been extra special. For two consecutive days, they managed to find forever homes for all of their adoptable dogs.

From December 18 through the end of the month, the shelter promises to waive all adoption fees for cats and dogs over 5 years of age as a part of their “Home for the Holidays” promotion. While the special event is not even halfway over, it has already proven tremendously successful, as they have seen entirely empty dog kennels for two straight days. On their Facebook, they celebrated this triumphant outcome with a short and sweet video and precious post:

“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!”

Of course, like all animal shelters, the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is constantly welcoming new arrivals, so you can be sure they will have ample adoptable furry friends throughout their Home for the Holidays campaign (and beyond). To check out all of their darling dogs, cats, and other lovable potential pets, you can visit their Adopt A Pet page.
