Brandi DeNoon Damewood, JCHS Marketing and Outreach Manager, says the event comes at a good time, as many shelters are experiencing an overflow of animals.
“So this event is very important because it’s not just about finding homes for the animals in our care, it’s about finding homes for the animals across our region.”
