Dog Shelter Runs Out Of Dogs To Adopt Out

A local dog shelter’s campaign to find rescue dogs a new home has worked way too well.

Called ‘Bring Them Home for the Holidays’, the Humane Society Pikes Peak Region shelter in Colorado waived its adoption fees and, for the first time, ran out of dogs after they sent their last pupper home.

"Although we've come close to adopting out all of our available dogs before, Monday was the first time we succeeded and had our dogs kennels completely empty!" says a shelter rep. 

"Seeing so many pets find wonderful new homes is what makes it all worthwhile for us."

Shelter volunteers celebrated the milestone by posing in their empty kennels, a photo that quickly went viral
