Saturday just may be Aspen's lucky day.
He'll be one of a half-dozen dogs looking for a new home at the "Tail Gate" from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Hall of Fame Lobby of the Stroh Center on the Bowling Green State University campus.
Aspen, a hound-mix, needs a strong owner to match the dog's strong will, according to Kathy Manley, a Wood County Humane Society volunteer who handles outreach events.
"He's almost too smart for his own good. He's a good boy; he just needs someone who's going to work with him," Manley said.
The humane society will have a three or four dogs and a few cats at the "pre-adoption" event. Visitors are welcome to fill out an application and questionnaire if they are interested in bringing a pet home.
Other participating organizations including Friends of the Wood County Humane Society (BGSU on-campus group), All About the Paw, K-9 Solutions and the Henry County Dog Shelter.
"It's an opportunity for the different shelter and adoption agencies around Wood County and Northwest Ohio to get out and get some exposure," said Lindsay Laurent, coordinator of sales and special events for the Stroh. "Hopefully we can get some pets forever homes."
Manley said events like this one at the Stroh help keep the humane society's population down and can bring in new volunteers.
She said the shelter dogs usually number around 12-15, but is at 20 now with the arrival of a litter of boxer-mix puppies - who are too young to make the trip to the Stroh. The cat population is around 100.
The humane society is down on volunteers right now, making it difficult to find the manpower to do events like these, Manley said.
For more information on adopting or volunteering, visit the humane society website, http://www.woodcountyhumanesociety.org/.
The first 25 visitors to the Tail Gate will receive a free ticket to see BGSU volleyball team take on Central Michigan at 5 p.m.
