Give a shelter pup a better life at one of these West Palm and North Palm events

The internet caught fire today with the story of Bobby, the Christmas sweater dog. He was a ‘code red’ animal at Miami Dade Animal Shelter, a designation that meant he was considered to be unadoptable and to be put down.

The original story, which melted hearts, said that he, “still wears the green Christmas sweater volunteers at the shelter dressed him up in, with hopes he would attract the attention of a family looking to adopt a very sweet dog.” Bobby’s owners dropped him off at the shelter on December 16, just before Christmas.

Thankfully there’s a happy conclusion to the story, due to the amount of press that it received, Bobby was quickly adopted.bobby

This weekend, you’ll have the opportunity to find your own Bobby. West Palm Beach is hosting Paws in the Park from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 14 at Waterfront Park, 101 N. Clematis Street.

The Village of North Palm Beach is also hosting their own event on Sunday, Puppy Love, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at Anchorage Park, 603 Anchorage Drive.

Dogs will be available for adoption at both events.
