Local animals found permanent homes on Saturday at the Animal Shelter Society of Muskingum County’s Holiday Open House.

The shelter invited the community to come out and learn more about the organization and to enjoy a day packed with exciting deals and activities.

"We have some special price adoptions which were sponsored by We Luv Pets and Invisible Fence,we had crafts for kids, some educational programs for adults, cookies and punch and it was just a day to have people come out and see the shelter and what we are doing here, " said Executive Director, Jody Murray.

The first 12 adoptions for cats and dogs were half priced and they also had rabbits, hamsters and even a dove for sale. Murray says that he way pleased with this year’s turnout and the support the animal shelter receives from the local community.

"We dodged the storm and that was great, said Murray. It’s been a sunshiny day. Its been a great turnout and some people come out just to look around and not just those who are interested in animals, the shelter has been part of the community for over 50 years. "

Murray says that if people did not make it to the open house they can give the shelter a call at anytime to come visit with the animals or learn more about the society.
