Homeward bound

The 2nd annual Pet Adoptathon got under way Saturday morning at the La Plata County Humane Society with throngs of pet lovers weaving their way among the kennels looking for the right four-legged friend to add to the family. The Humane Society reached its goal as 19 dogs, 10 cats and one rabbit found their way into new homes. During the 36-hour adoptathon, patrons of the Humane Society enjoyed free food, face painting and a host of activities and door prizes. An alumni party for adopted dogs capped off the highly successful weekend as a crowd of owners and their pups got together to help support the efforts of the La Plata County Humane Society.
