If you're looking for a dog or another dog, there's a great opportunity to adopt a new pet this weekend; everything from pit bulls to poodles.

Earlier this week a pit bull named Bella visited us here at News On 6 and attracted all kinds of attention not only for her, but for a big event Saturday.

Jamee Suarez-Howard with the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals said their big adoption fair, Rock and Rescue, is this weekend and there is a chance to check out lots of adoptable dogs in one place.

"We try to shoot for 50-60 adoptions in four hours," he said.

Bella is from Amore Pit Bull Rescue and came in wearing a bathing suit and sunglasses.

Lisa Varshay, her foster mamma, said, “She's very calm, she's a very calm dog. She's got a great personality."

Varshay said when she got Bella, she had no real social skills. But that's not the case anymore.

"Now she sits, she's crate trained, she's potty trained; she just needs a wonderful home," Varshay said.

More than 30 agencies will have dogs at the big event available for adoption.

Rock and Rescue is Saturday, June 27, 2015, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Riverwalk Crossing in Jenks.

There will be $20 micro-chipping and free ID tags available. You can get more information here.
