MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - The kennels at the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center are getting full, so they're making an urgent request to the community to help find forever homes for furry friends.
"Our citizens care deeply about animal welfare," interim director of the ARC Bob Gruhl said. "We're hoping we can activate that support system and get as many of these dogs in their permanent homes as soon as possible."
Shelter employees are working with area rescues and other organizations to find suitable housing for all the pets, but their goal is to find them all loving homes. To help with this mission, the ARC will have an adoption event on February 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., where people can come and get a furry family member for free.
Dog adoptions normally cost $20, which includes spay or neuter, micro-chipping, initial vaccinations and the first-year license fee.
