Dogs without homes will be roaming a meadow — on leashes and with handlers — during a weekend adoption event at the Nebraska Humane Society.
Cats that lack humans will be hanging out in the Humane Society’s “kitty camper.”
Fido Friendly Magazine is serving as host for Saturday’s adoption event. It is scheduled to run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the meadow near the Humane Society, which is near 89th and Fort Streets.
This is the 12th year that the magazine has hosted a cross-country pet adoption tour. The event will include a giant prize wheel.
The idea is to promote adoptions, said Pam Wiese, a spokeswoman for the Humane Society.
Because of the pandemic, the only way to meet animals at the shelter has been by appointment. Appointments have been on a first come, first-served basis.
Saturday’s event will let prospective adopters meet animals without an appointment.
