A local group of shelter volunteers was bringing some of their furry friends out to play Saturday morning.
LUV 4 Animals set up an adoption event in front of Pet Supplies Plus in Clarksburg.
The organization brought out dogs and cats from the Lewis Upshur Animal Control Facility to highlight them for adoption.
The event also served as a fundraiser to help the shelter.
The organization wants to show that adopting a shelter pet can be a great option.
“This lets the public kind of see that animals and see that pound animals aren’t these scared, scruffy things, we’ve got some beautiful full-bred dogs here that are healthy and happy and very friendly,” said LUV 4 Animals President Desiree Poling.
The Lewis Upshur Animal Control Facility is frequently full and is currently using spare kennels to help save as many animals as possible.
