One animal shelter in Colorado Springs, Colorado, has a lot to celebrate this season.
Gretchen Pressley, the organization's community relations manager, said the "Bring Them Home for the Holidays" campaign waived adoption fees for cats and dogs over the age of 5.
"That's really helped us get these guys out the doors and into wonderful homes," Pressley said.
KDVR reported that 25 cats and 23 dogs were adopted through the campaign. For two days in a row, all the dogs and cats up for adoption got homes.
“We’ve come very close to adopting out all of our available dogs before, but I think that’s the first time we had no available dogs in the shelter, which is just phenomenal,” Pressley told KOAA.
The feat was cause for celebration in the form of a Facebook video, which can be watched below:
