Itâ€™s hot outside, and so are animal adoptions at the Humane Society of Catawba County.
More animals were adopted from the HSCC from January to August than were adopted during the entire year in 2009.
â€śAdoptions are double what they normally have been. We donâ€™t know why that is,â€ť said Jane Bowers, HSCC interim executive director. â€śWe donâ€™t question it. Weâ€™re just glad itâ€™s happening.â€ť
The more animals that are adopted, then the more animals the HSCC can take into the shelter.
â€śWe are a no-kill shelter, so until we do adoptions, we canâ€™t fill it with other animals,â€ť Bowers said.
About 60 animals are adopted from the HSCC every month.
