This year was the first time we decided to remain open on Thanksgiving and offer Black Friday adoption specials. Considering we're new to the Thanksgiving weekend promotions, I'd say it went pretty well!
We had 42 adoptions between Thanksgiving day and Sunday!
Wiggles is one of the dogs that went to her forever home this weekend. She had been with us since late September and it was about time she found her new family! Wiggles was mistreated by her former guardian inside a car with no escape, but thankfully, some nice people intervened and she ended up at Town Lake Animal Center. Naturally, she had some trust issues to overcome but Wiggles has developed back into the gentle, sweet-tempered pup she was always meant to be. We're so happy to have helped her get a second chance to find a calm, happy life.
Suzette was owner surrendered to TLAC along with her 4 siblings because her owners just didn't have room for them. She then ended up on the euthanasia list at TLAC because they were out of space too! Poor girl just needed to find someone who wanted her around. Once with APA! it was only a matter of time before this cute girl was adopted, and Black Friday was the perfect day!
Thank you to all our volunteers who came out on the holiday and over the weekend to be with our homeless pets. Without your care and companionship they would not thrive and be the best pups and kitties they can be. We are always thankful for all of you and all the dogs and cats that come to us and bring so much joy to our lives, and for the adopters who make everything worthwhile.
