The Humane Society of Louisiana recently partnered with Solar Alternatives to host an all-day dog adoption event at the Lakeside Mall in Metairie.

The humane society had almost a dozen dogs and puppies up for adoption and was joined by staff members, volunteers and representatives from Solar Alternatives who displayed a customized doghouse fitted with a solar panel that generated enough energy to keep lights and a fan inside the doghouse running all day.

The doghouse was a big hit with visitors and will be displayed at adoption events throughout the year.
