April 27 marked the first ever Texas Panhandle Pet Savers Adopt-a-Thon.
The president of the Texas Panhandle Pet Savers tells us how it works.
She says pet savers also does follow up home checks, as well as meet and greets with other pups to make sure they will get along with their new brother or sister.
We ran into a girl who saw a furry friend she says just she just couldn't let get away.
Not only was it important to her to get a new sibling for Darwin, but she also tells us she has a soft spot for homeless dogs.
The Adopt-a-Thon also had $10 micro chips for sale, food, live music and small donations.
We asked Newton how important it is that pet savers finds man's best a friend a home.
If you couldn't make it to the park, the Texas Panhandle Pet Savers will have adoptions at Gebos on I-27 every Saturday and Sunday from 1-5.
They plan to learn a lot from this years event, and make next years even better.
