Hundreds of animal lovers waited in line on Sunday in Greensboro, North Carolina with the hope of having the opportunity to provide a rescued puppy with a forever home.

The hopeful adopters lined up outside the Guilford County Animal Shelter to fill out applications to adopt one of the dogs or puppies confiscated from a suspected puppy mill in Stokes County after the story made national headlines. The turnout was encouraging for those working to save the dogs – one person in line told reporters they drove eight hours from Ohio just to get a chance to adopt a dog and help take pressure off the shelter.

“We have a challenging task in trying to make sure we are giving everyone an equal opportunity to be considered for one of the dogs,” Marsha Williams with the GCAS said.

The Wendover Avenue shelter will be open again on Monday from noon to 6 p.m.  Adoption fees range from $95 to $250.  For more information on adopting the dogs,visit http://www.adoptshelterpets.org.

  2. The prices seem borderline greedy, and of course any shelter jumps at an opportunity to get the most adoptable animals, especially if they come with the media hype – PROFIT! They don’t even look at pounds where the saddest cases are in desperate need of rescuing.
