GREEN RIVER – The Green River Department of Animal Control will be hosting a two-day adoption event this Friday and Saturday after the center received 18 pets from the state of Texas this week. Most pets are dogs, and many are puppies.
Tracy Wyant, director of the center, said that because Green River has a good track record of excellent local participation in pet adoption, the city is being targeted by centers across the country that have too many. pets and not enough adopters.
Wyant says the Dog is My Co-pilot program sent 18 pets to the Rock Springs airport on Monday. All pets have received some or all of their vaccines, and the local Paw Spa donates pet bathing and grooming.
