Small pups from surrender case up for adoption

Posted: Updated:

More than 20 pups that were surrendered from one family are now ready to go to their fur-ever homes. Our Bliss Zechman got a chance to get to pet and love on those little dogs today. She explains how it's going to take more than affection to get care of the critters.
 

A couple of weeks ago, these pups were crammed into one home. The Lewis and Clark County Humane Society gave them some TLC and a few treats. Now, they're ready to find their forever families.

"This little one is about two years old. And she's had a few babies, but we're going to take care of that so she doesn't do that anymore," said Gina Wiest, Executive Director for the Lewis and Clark County Humane Society.  

Folks will be able to check out the roughly 20 small dogs tomorrow at Petsmart in Helena.  From noon till 3:00, you can find out if one of them is the perfect fit for your home by putting in your adoption application.

"It's going to be the best home for the dog, not necessarily the first come first serve," said Wiest.

The pups are a bit yappy and timid right now, but humane society workers say once you get them out of their cages, all they want to do is love.

"They
re just really great little dogs. They're a little scared and whatnot. But this can be a very scary place for little dogs," said Wiest.

Usually, the society is filled with larger breeds and cats. To make room for the influx of small dogs, through tomorrow, those pets are free to adopt.

"A lot of animals in foster care right now. Kittens. Oh my gosh. We're up to our eyeballs in kittens kittens kittens," said Wiest.  

About 70 animals in the society's care still need homes. Upcoming events like their Wine for Whiskers gala, which is next Saturday, can help alleviate some of the society's expenses.

"Get your guys to come out and drink for the dogs, drink for the cats, it
s awesome!"

Wiest says because these dogs have been through so much, and the society needs reliable funds, the adoption process will be very selective. But those lucky enough to earn their love are in for a real treat.


these guys are pretty adaptable. I don't think it will be an issue settling in."

    As snow and ice sets on the pavement, some folks might feel inclined to test their tires and drift in parking lots. While doing donuts may simply sound like fun, it’s actually very illegal. In fact, the Helena Police Department is currently looking for the driver of a car who was spinning circles in the Murdoch’s parking lot.
