The Alaqua Animal Refuge held an adoption fair last weekend in an effort to place recently rescued animals in new, loving forever homes. Part two of the adoption fair will be held this upcoming weekend. As a reminder, adoptions are also half off through Labor Day, so now is a perfect time to find a new best friend.

Since Alaqua is a no-kill refuge, when they have big rescues like this, it puts a strain on their resources. Alaqua was expecting about 60 dogs from a case in Holmes County, but now they have 147 and are expecting even more.
