Animal shelter hosts dog wedding to encourage adoptions

An animal shelter in South Carolina in the US live-streamed a special canine wedding between two of their pups to encourage donations and the importance of adopting dogs from shelters.

Greenville County Animal Care hosted the special day between dogs Sassy and Spero on Thursday, February 10 in honour of their new Have a Heart Heartworm Treatment Fund. Every heartworm positive dog will have their treatment covered in full through this fund, making it easier than ever to adopt a heartworm-positive dog.

According to the shelter, Sassy and Spero are both heartworm survivors and have been together since Sassy began treatment for heartworm. They walked down the aisle on Thursday and said ‘woof woof’ in their wedding finery before enjoying a special wedding cake.

Watch the sweet ceremony here:

The shelter is no stranger to doggy weddings. This has become a yearly tradition, and adopting are free during the week of the wedding.

Consider making a donation ( to the Have a Heart fund in lieu of gifts for this pawsome couple.
