Attleboro Animal Shelter celebrates the lack of dogs for adoption

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Those heading to the Attleboro Animal Shelter in search of a new dog will be out of luck.

There are no dogs to adopt at the shelter because they have all already been adopted. Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter President Kim Penque told WBZ’s Kim Tunnicliffe that this was the first time in the shelter’s history that they had no dogs to adopt.

“It’s different, I’ve never had to go through that,” she said. “I definitely think more people are working from home. They have the ability to work from home and they can spend more time with their dogs.”

The shelter has two dogs in its kennel, but they are both dogs with collars waiting to be claimed by their owners. Penque said she takes the lack of dogs to adopt as a sign that the shelter is doing a good job.

“For our little community of dogs that we’ve housed, this is heart-warming,” Penque said. “They all live in loving homes and we did what we wanted.”

The shelter still has cats to adopt. They are in the process of taking 25 cats from a local hoarding case.
