Midland, TX (Local Big 2 News) - The Midland Humane Coalition and Lone Star Sanctuary for Animals team up for the Pet Porch at the Midland County Fair.

"The fair is about animals and having animals out here and it was a good way to bring pets into it as well instead of just the horses and cows and that kind of stuff," said Karen Orozco, board member of the Midland Humane Coalition.

Shelter officials say the Pet Porch will be right outside the entrance of the exhibit hall.

"Every couple hours, we'll bringing out new dogs and taking some back to the shelters, we can showcase a whole bunch of different dogs," said Beth Clodfelter, manager of Lone Star Sanctuary for Animals.

While other pets will also inside down the hall.

"A lot of puppies right now, there's way too many in Midland, so we'll have all of these cages full with animals that will be available for adoption," Clodfelter said.

Clodfelter says shelters often see a huge decrease in adoption rates during the summer season. And on top of that, they see more pets abandoned by their owners.

"There's been a huge influx of people coming into Midland and sometimes to find a place to live, they're having to give up their animals," Orozco said.

Pet Porch will be open at the fair Friday from 5 to 7 in the evening. And on Saturday and Sunday from 10 in the morning till 5 p. m.
