SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT- Some furry friends need a new home, and if you've been wanting one of your own, this weekend is the perfect time to adopt one.

12 shelters and rescue groups across Vermont are participating in Free  Adoption Weekend.

The event is called Maddie's Fund Free Pet Adoption Days, in honor of a miniature shnauzer named Maddie.

We headed to Chittenden County Humane Society to see who's found their forever homes.

"We want to make sure that these dogs are going home to their forever home and that its going to work for the family and the dog," said Carolyn Paddock-Moore of All Breed Rescue.

You still have a chance to find your perfect pet on Sunday from 10am to 5pm.
