On Saturday morning, I had the pleasure of spending a few hours documenting the Adoptathon at Wayside Waifs. Now, normally, I'm there taking pictures when Wayside isn't open, so I usually see a few workers, a few volunteers, lots of cute animals, and that's about it. But, on Saturday morning, it was CRAZY busy! It warms my heart to see how many people volunteer their time and energy to help find all these beautiful animals good homes.

Here's a few numbers and we're on to the pics. The Adoptathon was from Friday through Sunday, and here's how many animals found homes:

157 dogs
100 cats
1 rabbit
10 animals waiting to go home
268 Total animals in 3 days!

It was by far the most successful adoptathon they've ever had!

Note - that doesn't mean they don't have any more animals that need to go home, so head on up and bring home a new companion!

Finally, here's a few of my favorites from the day...

Here's one of the volunteer/trainers working with the doggies
