Animal Shelter Has Dog Slumber Parties And We're Already Getting The Popcorn

Slumber parties are the best thing ever. Gossip, bad movies, junk food, they're perfect. All they're missing is a dog. Or dogs (plural).

Well, a shelter in Atlanta, LifeLine Animal Project, has made this a possibility, offering pajama parties with dogs who are up for adoption.

For one dog, adorably named Paul Anka, he had spent nine months at the shelter before heading off on his slumber party adventure.

After the ad was posted of Paul in his PJs, he received a lot of interest surrounding a potential sleepover. The family he slumber partied with ended up adopting Paul the next day.

The Director of LifeLine Animal Project, Karen Hirsch, says the slumber parties are extremely beneficial.

"In Paul's case, his new family had been hesitant to adopt a pit bull, but when they had him overnight, all their hesitation went right out the window. It is much harder to get pit bulls adopted because of people's preconceived notions. Pit bulls make great companion dogs — they are incredibly loyal, silly, and have the biggest smiles around."

To be honest, it sounds like this is the ideal way to spend a weekend. And a great way to have a test run before bringing a pet to their forever home!
