The Winnipeg Humane Society has more puppies than it can handle, and is hoping to place them into loving homes as soon as possible.

The animal shelter says it has nearly 30 puppies and over 20 dogs of every age, shape and colour available for adoption right away.

On December 29 and 30, the WHS is offering adult dogs for $75 and puppies for $175.

CEO Bill McDonald says it’s a great time to get a new family member, as many people are taking this week off, making for more time to visit them at 45 Hurst Way.

“There is something so sad about watching a puppy grow up in a shelter,” said McDonald. “We have great dogs available, including Bongo, one of the Gull Lake dogs.”

The price still includes spay/neuter surgery, tattoo, first set of shots, de-worming, a two-week health check, six weeks of pet insurance, and a City of Winnipeg dog license. Each dog undergoes a temperament test before entering adoption.
