The puppies came out to play Saturday at Colonial Lanes Bowling Alley in Huntington to help raise money for Advocates Saving Adoptable Pets (ASAP).
The Dog Bowl fundraiser allows ASAP to provide quality care for the animals while also benefiting the adoption and foster programs as well as covering veterinarian bills.
Huntington residents came out to support the cause by paying $10 a person that included two hours of bowling and shoe rentals.
Karen Halliburton, a Huntington resident, brought her family of eight to participate in the event.
Halliburton said she is an animal lover who wants to help the local animals in any way possible.
“They are so giving,” Halliburton said. “They unconditionally love us. We need to care for them because they give us so much more than we ever do for them.”
ASAP, and Colonial Lanes owner Amy Lynn Claus teamed up for the second time to make an impact in the lives of animals.
Connie Gilkerson, vice president of ASAP and remote adoption event coordinator at Cabell Wayne Animal Shelter, has been working with the animals for three years seeing a great number of animals adopted.
“I’m truly passionate about my job because I want the dogs out of the shelter and to be put in loving homes so people can find the love of their life,” Kerns said.
The shelter is able to directly communicate with the public through the use of their Facebook page. Animals adopted at the events are placed on their page with a photo of the animal and their new owner.
In 2014, the shelter placed 233 dogs in their forever homes.
There were three dogs at the event available for adoption. One of the dogs was adopted at the event.
ASAP received an adequate amount of donations that will benefit the Huntington Cabell Wayne Animal Shelter.
