A group of animal lovers want to help dogs in need and hope a great idea pays off.
The idea is to have 100 dogs adopted in Dallas on Saturday.
“We started to realize the overcrowding in shelters and the dog population in general. And rescue groups are kind of stretched in terms of resources and capacity. So we thought about two months ago and decided that we wanted to do something large-scale,” said Allison Frizzo, the organizer of an adoption event called The Barking Project.
Frizzo pitched the idea with like-minded friends who adopt dogs and volunteer at shelters and rescue groups across Dallas-Fort Worth. They decided that bringing all the groups together in one place would help more animals find loving homes.
Local rescues including Dallas Animal Services, SPCA, Saving Hope, Rockwall Pets, The Love Pit, Weimaraner Rescue of Texas, White Rock Dog Rescue, Cane Rosso Rescue will all be attending the event. They will handle actual adoptions and the fees will vary.
The Barking Project will take place on Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Griggs Park in Dallas. The park is located at 2200 rue Hugo.
