Hillsborough Holds a Doggie Reunion to Celebrate New Beginnings
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Nov. 16, 2020) - Last fall, Hillsborough County animal control officers rescued hundreds of dogs being kept in deplorable conditions by a local breeder. More than 300 of the Diana Street Dogs, as they came to be known, found new homes on Nov. 17, 2019 in a mass adoption event that was so popular tickets were distributed through a lottery system.
A year later, some of those dogs will reunite for the first time at the Hillsborough County Pet Resource Center, 440 N. Falkenburg Road.
More than a dozen dogs and their owners will gather in small playgroups at the Pet Resource Center at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17 to take pictures, make new memories, and celebrate the dramatic changes in the dogs' lives. To maintain social distancing, the owners and their dogs will meet each other in several outdoor fenced play areas.
