Tiffany, left, a 2-3-year-old Chihuahua mix, and Elle, a 1-2-year-old Corgi-Lab mix are part of Odessa Animal Control’s new pajama party program. The pajama party program is a take home program to encourage adoptions of dogs on their urgent list and to allow the animals time outside the shelter. A dog can be picked up in its pajamas between 3:30-4:45pm Monday-Friday and will keep the dog overnight. Each family will sign a waiver and the animal must not be allowed to stay outside overnight. OAC will provide the crate, food, treats, bowls, and a leash. The family is required to bring back the dog the next morning between 8-10 a.m. by appointment unless they have fallen in love and want to adopt. If a family would like to adopt the will finish the adoption process for their newest family member. For more information contact Odessa Animal Control at (432)368-3527.
