Local non-profit hosts adoption event for various dogs, many with special needs

SALISBURY, Md. – Grass Roots Rescue hosted an adoption day event Saturday afternoon at Johnson’s Seed and Feed in Salisbury.

The goal was to find several four-legged friends a forever home.

The non-profit takes dogs from shelters and even puppy mills to foster and prepare them for adoption.

We’re told the dogs from Saturday’s event were actually transported in from a shelter in North Carolina.

Organizers tells us they see the value in all dogs, including those with special needs. “Like Supernova here, she’s deaf and there are other ones that take a little more to socialize. Events like this really help them open up and learn how to be a dog, deal with people, and open their eyes to a world that’s super nice to them,” Event Coordinator Jana Buttram.

The non-profit currently operates out of the homes of volunteers who foster.

They’re currently looking to expand into their own facility to provide training for owners looking to adopt dogs with special needs.
