Adoption event gives shelter pets forever homes

January 8, 2019

HUNTINGTON — Adults and children huddled around cages at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena on Sunday for the chance to adopt a cat or dog into their families.

The pet adoption event was sponsored by the Huntington Cabell Wayne Animal Shelter, which offered discounted rates for the animals. Dozens of people left the arena with new pets either on a leash or in a carrier. All animals were sprayed or neutered and fully vaccinated.

There was also a raffle for prizes, a cake walk, live music and pet ID tag engraving.
