The Christian County Sheriff’s Office recently announced that it will host its first ever pet adoption event in the Sheriff’s Department and that it will be the first large-scale adoption to bring all agencies together. local pet adoption for the event.
OHCC has dubbed the event the âOHCC Paw and Claw Adoption Eventâ and is scheduled to take place on October 23 from 10 am to 2 pm at the Sheriff’s Office located at 701 West Seventh Street.

CCSO Deputy and Public Information Officer Chris Miller told New Era that CCSO was looking to organize adoption for two main reasons: community engagement and, quite simply, to help animals find a home.
“One of the things we do as members of Parliament is respond to a lot of calls from animals in distress, which are animals that have been abandoned, animals that are mistreated – this is one of the things that we are responding, so we kind of have a heart for the animals and we wanted to do something that would give back to the community and help some of the associated (pet) agencies that we work with to find good homes for some of the animals â Miller said.
Miller continued to recognize that many animal rescue agencies or shelters in the area have had issues with their capacity and are unable to find all of the newly rescued animals.
“So we thought, what better way to help give back and solve this problem of finding homes for all of these animals is to set up and host this event where we can get everyone together and have this happening? and adopting pets, âMiller mentioned.
He went on to share that the event would take place in the east parking lot of the Sheriff’s Office building, which has shaded areas and enough space for animal agencies to set up tents and bring as many animals. as possible to present and adopt. in the event.
The sheriff’s office will also grill hot dogs, distribute food, play music, and hand out tickets for door prizes.
âWe’re trying to make it a fun day,â Miller said, adding that the sheriff’s office has been advised that a food truck or two may also join the event to provide additional food options at the event. adoption.
âBut we try to make it a fun day and encourage everyone to go out and browse the animals if you are looking for a companion or a pet,â Miller said. “It would be a good day to do it.”
Miller also said he believes this event will be the first time the five pet agencies involved have come together in a single event to showcase pets for adoption.
âSo there will be more animals at this event than likely any single adoption event that any of these adoption agencies have organized as a combination of all of them,â he said. .
CCSO just hopes that through this event as many pets as possible will be adopted.
âWe hope to find good homes for as many pets as possible,â Miller said. âIt’s as short and sweet as I can make it. This is our goal and the main reason for doing it.
