Florida animal shelter empty ‘for the first time in history’ after every dog adopted

For these volunteers and animal lovers it was the happiest day of their lives. The shelter they were all gave theirselves in for the greatest cause, had all its kennels empty, for the very first time in history!

When all the dogs at the Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control shelter in Florida, got adopted, the volunteers here just could not believed their eyes, so they decided to pose for an epic snap! Taking Facebook, they decided to celebrate the incredible moment with a memorable post.

“An incredible and joyful thing happened today… For the first time in the history of Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control, we have completely emptied one of our three dog kennels! This amazing milestone was made possible by the help and support of our entire community,” the shelter wrote on Facebook. ” Thank you to the shelter staff and volunteers who work tirelessly…thank you to our incredible foster parents who open their heart and homes to thousands of pets each year; thank you to everyone who has adopted.”

The Palm Beach shelter has no less than 48 dog runs, with each one hosting two dogs at a time, so naturally when all of them got emptied, the staff was happier than ever. Once proud for the effort they’ve all put in and second, happy for the dogs they used to care for as they all found forever homes and loving families.

“It was a combined effort from the community. The animals went to foster homes, adopters, and to our partner rescue organizations,” Elizabeth Harfmann, community outreach manager at the shelter, told CNN. “We’ve also seen a decrease in incoming animals, so that has helped as well.”

The shelter wanted to celebrate the moment and they found a very original way to do so. Watch it bellow:
