Pet of the Week: Opal the dog is looking for a home

MADISON (WKOW) — A small dog named Opal has a lot of love to give. She’s ready to be adopted from the Dane County Humane Society.

Opal is a terrier-mix who came to the shelter as a stray. She knows commands like “sit” and she’s already house trained.

Volunteers named her Opal because they say she’s a gem.

The Dane County Humane Society also has dozens of other dogs available for adoption. They are celebrating Adopt a Dog Month with their Find Your Fido promotion.

  • Reduced adoption fees for any dogs that have stayed at DCHS for more than 30 days
  • Half price ($20) microchips for all adopted dogs
  • All dog adopters get entered into a drawing for a free dog training class
  • Giveaway item for dog adopters

The promotion runs through Sunday, Oct. 14.
