"We're going to microchip them, get them vaccinated," said Director Susan Garcia. She said there has been enormous public interest in adopting both the puppies and adult dogs even though some may have health or socialization issues.
"We're going to tell people the different issues the different dogs have. There will be some medical issues we'll need to explain to people," she said.
Those interested in adopting must pre-register and pre-pay $100 dollars at 9 a.m. Saturday. The money will be refunded to potential owners who don't find a dog.
