The Humane Society for Hamilton County was at the Stony Creek Farm Pumpkin Harvest Festival today for Pet Adoption Day.
This pet adoption day was designed to highlight the critical need for homes for many of the animals the Hamilton County Humane Society cares for.
It is not just Humans that are feeling the downturn in the economy with pets frequently being abandoned or turned into humane shelters across the USA as their owners can no longer afford to pay for them.
