MIDLAND - They're trying to save lives through adoption.

On Saturday, the Midland Humane Coalition teamed up with PetSmart to see if there's enough interest in the community to hold adoptions there every day of the week.

They had 15 dogs up for adoption on Saturday and hoped to get 10 of them homes.

The Humane Coalition is working to bring a No Kill shelter to Midland and they say with PetSmart's help it can become a reality.

"The traffic, because of the high visibility and PetSmart is such a public positive entity for the animals. Because it is a humane place, it's where we bring all our dogs and cats," Susie Hitchcock-Hall with the Midland Humane Coalition, said.

Last year, nearly 4,500 animals were put down in Midland.

They hope to nearly cut that number in half by finding homes for all adoptable animals.

The Humane Coalition says they'll find out if PetSmart will extend dog adoptions to seven days next week.
