Happy days for once-homeless pets and their new owners –

More than 40 homeless dogs and puppies found forever homes during the Northshore Humane Society’s annual Home for the Holidays initiative — a record number adoptions since the event began in 2014.

The Dec. 4 event in Covington showcased shelter dogs from both Northshore Humane and Once Upon a Tail Rescue; adoption fees were waived, thanks to private sponsors. The day also included food, a gift shop and even a vintage camper for holiday family and pet photos. 

More dogs and cats are still available for adoption. Additionally, Northshore Humane will hold a Christmas Vacation Foster Campaign on Dec. 21-22, encouraging families to temporarily take a shelter dog or cat home for the Christmas holidays. Get more information at
