LUCAS COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

As temperatures rise, so do the number of animals the Lucas County Dog Warden picks up.

Now they're working to find those animals permanent homes.

The dog warden is teaming up with other local rescue groups and having a huge adoption event this weekend. More than 200 cats and dogs are up for adoption, and this weekend they will all be in one place.

The event will be held at the Lucas County Recreation Center, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. There will be specials and reduced costs.

"Coming into the summer season, dogs continually come in," said Laura Simmons, operations manager at the Lucas County Dog Warden. "We're picking up so many dogs, we're actually picking up more dogs than we're adopting out."
