"Introducing a dog into your home before the hectic holiday season will give your dog a chance to get use to your family, settle into your home and also get a head start on potty training before the hectic holiday season," said Elaine McClain who is the Marion County Public Information Officer.
McClain with Marion County said some dogs at animal services are actually already house-broken, which means that dog may make an easy transition into a home.
So far more than 35 dogs have been adopted this month.
