SAN ANGELO, Texas — Concho Valley PAWS is urging the public to foster or adopt a dog at their free adopting event at Petco on Saturday, Oct. 22.

According to a release from PAWS, the animal shelter is over capacity, leaving just a few days for 20 or more dogs to be adopted or fostered. Placing these animals would prevent euthanasia.
