      Four million cats and dogs are put down in shelters each year according to the Humane Society of the United States.

       That's about one every eight seconds.

      Petsmart is hoping to reduce that number this weekend with their annual national adoption weekend.

       Despite the cloudy weather, and some rain, people still came out to pick out a new addition to the family.

       Humane societies from many shelters in central Kentucky are participating.

       National adoption weekend runs until 9pm Saturday and all day Sunday.
