Black dogs were getting some love Saturday at a local animal shelter.
The Animal League of Washington County hosted a Black Paws Adoption event at the county animal shelter.
Carmen Nelson says black animals are the least adopted from shelters nationwide.
So today's event was to bring awareness and help get some of the black dogs and cats adopted.
"We just felt like there's such a huge need to get awareness A, for the shelter and B, for all the wonderful animals that are here," says Carmen Nelson, with the Animal League of Washington County.
The Washington County Animal Shelter had 41 black dogs up for adoption on Saturday.
Their goal is to find all of them homes through the initiative.
