Humane Society breaks record for adoptions


In the seven days before Christmas, more than 110 animals living at the Peninsula Humane Society found new homes, setting a record for the shelter's holiday adoption count.

Rabbits, mice, rats, cats, dogs and an exotic bird were among the animals adopted between Dec. 18 and Dec. 24, according to humane society Director Scott Delucchi.

The shelter topped the 100-adoption mark in 2007 and 2008, but this year was the first time the 110 mark was reached, he said.

Humane society President Ken White said the shelter was thrilled with the number of adoptions.

"This absolutely made our holiday season," he said.
