Pets at Lewis-Clark Animal Shelter find homes over holiday

LEWISTON, ID - Big retailers aren't the only kind of business that got cleaned out this holiday season.

The Lewis-Clark Animal Shelter saw an increase of cat and dog adoptions just before Christmas. Director of Operations Donna Duffau said they don't have any kittens or puppies left after the big holiday rush.

"Probably eight dogs and ten cats, so that was really great, it's a good number to see," said Duffau. "Specifically people saying we're getting this as a pet for the family for Christmas."

However Duffau said there are still many loving animals that need a home. Many of the older animals have a harder time getting adopted.
