LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Dogs and cats who lose their homes here in lee county often wind up in a shelter. But it's not until they are outside of the kennel that they can show their true personality. The Gulf Coast Humane Society featured several furry friends in a unique way, outside of the cage.
"Ya know a lot of our dogs just don't really like to be in the kennel. They want to be out, they're very social," said Jennifer Galloway, Director of the Gulf Coast Humane Society.
The Gulf Coast Humane society organized this event for anyone to come and see these pets outside of the kennels. One of their stars is a friendly and lovable dog named Chase.
"A lot of times in their kennel they may bark at you, and its not because they're aggressive, its because they're saying get me outta here," said Galloway.
Inside the kennel, Chase won't interact much with visitors. But once he's outside, it's completely different. Chase sits, rolls over, and shakes on command.
Jeremy Spink volunteers with the Humane Society, he says he met his "best friend" their six months ago. He says once he got Monti outside of the kennel, he saw the same change in his new best friend.
Spink urges animal lovers to come down to the Humane Society and volunteer too see the friendlier side of these animals.
"Come to an event like this and meet your new best friend."
