Pet adoptions set for today at Bonita Lakes Mall

Because the number of abused, abandoned and unwanted pets continues to grow, the Lauderdale County Humane Society will offer pet adoptions at Bonita Lakes Mall today for the third time in as many months.
Lee said by Monday volunteers were fostering an additional seven abandoned puppies. The number has continued to grow ever since. Organizers expect to have as many, if not more, animals Saturday as they had for the adoption day in October.
The humane society relies on volunteers to foster unwanted animals since a building is not available for the county's discarded animals. Interested families have often had difficulty finding out how to adopt these animals. Organizers feel the mall is a good solution until a permanent shelter can be found.
Long and Lee both stress that unwanted pets are not to be dropped off at the mall.
