They are young, healthy and homeless. But volunteers at the Pike County Animals Shelter are working day and night to change the fate of those pups.

"You can't look at this little fellow and know that this is going to be a loving and giving and kind pet," said Donna Schubert.

Shubert is the chairperson of the Pike County Animal Shelter and says progress on the new building is coming along.

The land has already been purchased and they've raised $40,000 but the shelter still needs an additional $200,000.

That is why fundraisers like Fur Fest are vital to the animals' survival.

"We'll have beauties and beasts and you name it, a lot of fun, barbecue, dog obedience classes, admission is free and the funds that we raise go to benefit the Pike animal shelter," says Shubert.

Owners say adopting shelter dogs like Seb, do more than just help the animals.

Susan Green with Adopted Shelter Pet says, "Seb has provided us with a happier lifestyle, he lets us stop and smell the roses sometimes and keeps things a little calmer around our house, believe it or not."

Seb has been a part of Green's family for just a few weeks and while they may not know exactly what breed he is.

"Seb is a lab mix, we're not quite sure what the other mix is but we say he's mixed with love."

He provides the Green's with all the love and companionship they'll ever need.

"If you're looking for an animal that is going to become a part of your family life then I think some of the greatest blessings are to adopt an animal that needs a home," adds Schubert.

Fur Fest is this Saturday at the Recreation Center in Troy, activities begin at 10 a.m.
