Twenty-four dogs have a home after the City of Winnipeg’s Animal Services Agency held a two-day sale last Wednesday and Thursday.
More than 100 visitors came to have a look for a new pet, and helped adopt two dozen pooches into loving homes.
As of Monday, 17 dogs were still awaiting adoption. Twelve unlicensed stray dogs are also waiting for their owners to claim them at Animal Services.
The city is reminding residents to license their dogs, who are often returned quicker to their owners when lost than a non-licensed dog. The fine for not licensing your dog is $250. Only about 10 percent of dogs entering Animal Services are licensed.
