50 puppies were rescued from a Santa Ana, California pet shop last month. They were dehydrated and suffering from respiratory infections and other health problems.
Last Friday, the Orange County Animal Care Services announced they would be putting the 50 puppies up for adoption during the weekend.
Hundreds of people came to the shelter to give the puppies loving homes. At least 100 people showed up early for the adoption event and were waiting in the parking lot for the animal shelter to open.
There were so many people that showed up to adopt the puppies that the animal shelter had to use a lottery system to pick winners. Each and every one of the puppies found a new and caring home.
Four cats, a rabbit, and a guinea pig that had been taken from the pet store also found new homes.
Twenty other dogs at the animal shelter, not from the pet store, found homes at the adoption event.
