Local rescue dogs found a new home on Sunday.
Coldwell Banker River Valley, Realtors sponsored a pet adoption event at the Onalaska Petco on Sunday afternoon. New Leash on Life, a La Crosse-based dog rescue, showcased available dogs currently in foster care.
Pet owners could get their picture taken with their dogs for just $10. Anyone who adopted at the event could get the picture taken for free. Coldwell Banker contributed $10 to New Leash on Life on their behalf.
Organizers said it is the pets that make a house a home.
"There are more U.S. households that have dogs or pets than children," said Jillian Hugo with Coldwell Banker River Valley, Realtors. "And so, we think there's nothing that makes a house a home more quickly than adding a furry friend."
This is the first local event Coldwell Banker has hosted in partnership with an animal rescue group. The Coldwell Banker organization has partnered with AdoptAPet.com for years, helping more than 20,000 dogs find a home.
