A little over a year ago, we featured our first animal from the Yellowstone Valley Animal on Wet Nose Wednesday. Her name was Genie, a 2-year old Heeler Mix who had a run in with a porcupine, before being adopted.

Today, the 50th pet featured on Wet Nose Wednesday has been adopted.

Last week we introduced you to Copper, a 6-year old Hound Mix who was the longest-stay dog at the Yellowstone Valley Animal Shelter.

On Monday (11/30), we got the update from YVAS that Copper was officially adopted over Thanksgiving weekend! That makes it fifty animals who have found their person, after Cat Country 102.9 made them famous on Wet Nose Wednesday.
