The PAWS shelter in Lynnwood has an unusual number of puppies that need to be adopted.
While the largest number of puppies typically comes in during the late summer and early fall, the shelter said it has two to three dozen up for adoption right now. They typically have just four to ten this time of year.
"We have some beagle mixes that are absolutely adorable, we have some lab mixes that are really cute," said PAWS' Spokesperson Mark Coleman. "We'll try to match you up to exactly the right puppy and send you home with a great Christmas gift."
PAWS Foster Care Coordinator Rebecca Oertel said Tuesday she can't remember ever having that many puppies up for adoption during the holiday season. During the month of December, the shelter is offering a "Home for the Holidays" promotion that will help to discount adoption fees. Adoption costs range from $30 to $100.
