An Ohio animal shelter is helping dogs find forever homes this season with its “Holiday Sleepover” program. It allows people to bring a dog home for a few days over the holidays, knowing lots of them will have a hard time bringing their furry friends back to the shelter.
The Holiday sleepover program also gives the dogs a chance for some normalcy and helps prepare them for being long-term foster pets or even being adopted. Plus, plenty of folks could use some extra companionship during this time of year, even if it’s just for a few days.
Kelly Connelly already adopted the dog she took home to spend with her family for Thanksgiving. She says they had plans to get a dog, but not until 2019, but Rosie had other plans for them. “She was just the perfect fit,”Connelly says. “And we’re glad that she’s ours now.”
