The LifeLine Animal Project in Atlanta knows that the only thing that could possibly make a slumber party better is dogs. Lots and lots of dogs. The shelter has decided to start throwing special sleep-over for potential pet parents, so people can get an idea of what life with the dog would be like.
The shelter has already seen some success with the new program. A pit bull that goes by the name Paul Anka was a part of the program, and he’s already got a new forever family. He spent a total of nine months at the shelter with little to no interest. However one sleep-over was all it took for his new family to fall in love, and take him home the next day.
“In Paul’s case, his new family had been hesitant to adopt a pit bull, but when they had him overnight, all their hesitation went right out the window,” said Karen Hirsch. Hirsch is the public relations director for the shelter.
