Yakima Rescues & Shelters Team Up for Adopt-A-Thon

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.--The Yakima Humane Society and several local rescues got together for one big a"Adopt-A-Thon" Saturday.

This is the second year Cascade Animal Products sponsored the event.

The volunteer coordinator for the humane society said even though it's a smaller adoption event, it's a great way to learn about families and help them find their perfect dog.

"Lots of chatting, lot of meet and greets and we're looking forward to hopefully finding some matches today," said Erica Seaver-Engel with the Yakima Humane Society.

The Yakima Humane Society said they currently have more than 100 dogs and the shelter is completely full.
