For the first weekend of fall, they're hoping more people "fall" in love with a new forever friend.
To help find that perfect pooch, BARC uses the "Meet Your Match" program. Behavior experts identify pet personalities and give them labels like "free spirit," "goofball," "love bug" and "party animal."
Today is the last day of the Fall in Love at BARC event. The adoption fee has been reduced to just $20 for dogs and $10 for cats, and the fee is waived for what they call "PurrFurred" pets, which are animals that have been at the shelter longer than 20 days.
If you're interested in seeing what BARC has to offer at this event, head over to 3200 Carr Street between noon and 6pm today.
This event is part of an ongoing campaign to reach 2,100 adoptions by the end of October for the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge. The challenge began August 1. The nonprofit or government agency that shows the biggest improvement in adoption numbers compared to the same time last year wins $100,000.
