KELOWNA - Dog lovers responded so well to news stories about a busload of rescue dogs coming to Kelowna for adoption that organizers have now added a second bus so 65 dogs will be available this weekend.

Embrace a Discarded Animal Society founder Leslie Fee announced in March that she was bringing 40 rescue dogs to Kelowna for adoption and looking for people to help care for them.

In a news release issued today, May 1, the society said that response was so “overwhelming” that it added more dogs and another day to the event.

They are scheduled to arrive between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. tomorrow, May 2, at PetSmart where 20 volunteers will walk the dogs. Seven of those are Kelowna residents who have already had home checks so they will be able to adopt some of the dogs.

The adoption event runs from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday at PetSmart at 2024 Harvey Ave.

Anyone wanting to adopt will have to fill out an application form and have a home checks done before getting their dog.
