Operation Paws for Homes (OPH), an Arlington-based dog rescue organization, hosted its first pet adoption event in Hyattsville on Halloween day, partnering with the Big Bad Woof, the Arts District’s eco-friendly pet supply store.
“I think there’s a tremendous amount of interest in the community to adopt and not enough venues offering adoption in a setting like this where people can come meet the dogs without having to go to a shelter,” said Big Bad Woof Owner Pennye Jones-Napier. The pleasant fall weather brought hundreds of Arts District shoppers to the adoption table where they metthree canines in need of homes. Nearly a dozen OPH volunteers were on hand to connect dogs with possible forever-homes.
