A long line formed at the Lubbock Animal Shelter Saturday where potential adopters hoped to change a pet's life.
"We had people waiting in line for an hour and a half or so just to get the first look at the pest we had for adoption; it's really worked out great," Lubbock Animal Services Director Kevin Overstreet said.
Hill's Pet Nutrition sponsored "Change a Pet's Life Day" at the shelter. They are part of a national adoption drive to give animals in the shelter a second chance at loving homes, and Hill's paid the adoption fee for the first ten adoptions at the Lubbock shelter. Overstreet predicted they would adopt all of the available animals, but he says they'll have more next week.
"We have several pets that will be available next week. It's a cycle, you know, we have a hold that we have to place on them to make sure we are adopting healthy pets," Overstreet said. All pets adopted are vaccinated, micro-chipped, spayed or neutered and licensed if they are old enough.
