LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Capital Area Humane Society had some special visitors.

The shelter has nine puppies named after members of the MSU basketball team, who stopped by to say hello to their namesakes.

After hearing about the puppies, Tyson Walker called up the shelter to see if they could meet.

“They are just really nice guys. It made the staff feel really good,” said Penny Pearsall. “It was just one of those special moments that we had no idea was going to happen and it’s just kind of turned into this really cool thing.”

Pearsall said she hopes with the puppies’ popularity, they will find their forever homes soon.

More information on the shelter and pets available for adoption can be found on its official website. You can donate money directly to the Capital Area Humane Society here.
