On Saturday, July 22, First Castle Federal Credit Union hosted the “Dog Days of Summer” adoption event with St Tammany Humane Society at Covington branch, and we are so excited to say that it was a solid success!
For every dog adopted at the event, First Castle donated $50 to the Humane Society as well as matching all adoption fees up to $50. We expected several dogs to find their homes at this event, but it was pretty incredible to see eight dogs adopted in just half a day.
8 dogs adopted at our event!
At our event eight dogs (Angus, Scooby, Shaggy, Skylar, Pointer, Lego, Becks, and Yang) were all adopted, and later the same day the Humane Society adopted out another six pups at their facility (Toni, Blanca, Jude, Sofia, Velma and Jonah).
A total of 14 dogs found a family in a single day. It was a VERY successful day for all of the homeless animals at the STHS rescue! #happyday
