TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Some four legged friends hit the halls of the Honey Creek Mall on Saturday during their monthly visit.

‘Mutts at the Mall’ aims at getting dogs out into the community and hopefully into forever homes. Volunteers are on hand to help introduce dogs to people that might be looking for a pet.

There’s also information on hand that can help educate animal owners on the proper treatment of a pet they already have.

Shelter officials say events like these help with overcrowding problems.

“It’s important to get the animals seen, and the public come in to see them so hopefully we’ll get some adoptions so that way it opens up space when we have other animals come in,” explained Miranda Rush, ‘Mutts at the Mall.’

One way to help reduce the stray animal population is by getting your animal microchipped so that it can be returned home to its owners. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
