The first thing most people said as they walked up was "awwww."
Almost 20 dogs were present at the Adopt-A-Pet puppy shower Saturday afternoon at the Victoria Mall.
Carol Klages, president of the board for Adopt-A-Pet of Victoria, along with seven other volunteers, educated potential adopters about pet ownership and even spiked enough interest in a few people to adopt one of the dogs as their own.
Adopt-A-Pet brought a variety of dogs to the event, including a great dane, a shih tzu mix, and a schnauzer mix, just to name a few.
Not everyone came to adopt though. Since the event is a shower, people were encouraged to stop by and drop off donations and gifts, said Klages.
One such person was Nicole Prukop, who brought dog food and a few toys.
