Pet friends reunion

Posted:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - For many owners, pets become part of the family. That's why the Cedar Bend Humane Society held an alumni reunion.

Animals adopted from the shelter and their families spent an evening at Gateway Park in Cedar Falls. There was food, prizes, and Animal Planet star Joel Silverman offered training tips and demonstrations.

The Humane Society says this is a way to see the new families.

"Sometimes this is the first time we're seeing an animal after it's been adopted from the shelter which is really great to see how they've adjusted to their new family and new surroundings," said Autumn Ewoldt, Cedar Bend Humane Society.

Copies of Silverman's new book "What Color Is Your Dog?" were sold, with profits goting towards building a new home for animals in Black Hawk County.
