Local animal shelters team up for National Adoption Weekend

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Pine Belt animal shelters are working together this weekend to find forever homes for some homeless cats and dogs.

They're at PetSmart for a National Adoption Weekend.

Hub City Humane Society, Southern Pines Animal Shelter, Southern Cross Animal Shelter and Happy Healthy Pet Adoption have plenty of pets who need a good home and all are offering lots of good adoption deals.

It's all about getting the pets into loving homes.

"We're shooting to get at least 40 adoptions this weekend," said Zachary Williams, with the Hub City Humane Society. "We're about halfway there. We have a lot of great animals, adults, puppies, kittens. So, if anybody is thinking about getting a pet, this would be the weekend to do it. It would help everybody out immensely," he said.

If you didn't adopt any of the pets Saturday, you have a chance to do it again at the same location Sunday afternoon.
