WFXG is a big champion for animals in need. This week's featured pet "Up Fur Adoption Now" – Athena.
After appearing on this segment on WFXG FOX 54's, Athena was immediately adopted.
Bobby Arthurs of the Aiken County Animal Shelter tells us "Thank you so much for having Athena and I this morning. You and Fox 54 really did it! The adopter [saw] the fur baby segment, and beat me to the shelter, and adopted before we made it back!"
Arthurs said Athena is a one year-old Chihuahua – "little shy but warms up to you quickly, walks great on a leash and is the perfect lap dog."
The shelter is getting closer to capacity, according to Arthurs. They're in need of, and seeking, animal foster volunteers.
