PITTSBURG, KS.--- University Bank partners up with an animal shelter in hopes of finding homes for stray animals. The Kansas Humane Society and the bank co-hosted an adopt-a-thon today. The shelter is currently at maximum capacity with 90 dogs and 40 cats. Shelter workers say this increase is due to pet owners who don't spay and neuter their animals. They hope this event will help lower those numbers.
"It's great that people are needing to come out and adopt these animals that we have because when you adopt one from a shelter, you don't only save that one animal's life, you save the animal that takes its place. So you're actually saving two lives when you adopt an animal," said Erica Wilson, Kansas Humane Society.
University Bank contributed $10 towards each adoption fee.
