Austin Wheat stands in the cold and the rain with Sophie, a non-adoptable therapy dog, at the Pittsburg County Animal Shelter.

The McAlester Radio DJ was staying in a dog kennel at the shelter on Wednesday until 20 dogs or cats are adopted. The event ended with 12 adoptions.

McAlester radio posted an update to social media.

"Although we didn't meet our goal of 20 adoptions, for a day that was filled with rain and cold temperatures, we would like to thank everyone who made today possible and the ones who came away with a new family member!" 

Anyone who adopted a pet during the promotion was entered for a chance to have their name drawn to win two tickets to the Big V Feeds Hi Lo ProRodeo presented by Sam Wampler’s Freedom Ford set for Friday and Saturday that is produced by Hi Lo ProRodeo and the McAlester Area Chamber of Commerce.
