TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL)-- The kennels at the Tallahassee-Leon Community Animal Service Center are undergoing renovations to install insulation to keep the dogs healthy and safe in the extreme heat. The dogs were fostered out temporarily, but the center held its first home tested foster approved adoption on Sunday.

The dogs removed from the kennels last week are currently living in foster homes, but Sunday's event gave those interested in adopting a dog a chance to meet the current owners and learn about their potential pet's characteristics and mannerisms.

One of the foster parents explained how this event is helpful.

"We've learned a lot of things about dogs we didn't know, dogs we didn't think were good with other animals are good with other animals and it's really really great. It's a good educational experience for us and it'll help us in the adoption of the animals that aren't adopted today in their future adoptions it'll help us match them with a family that will work very well with them," said Leigh Fremuth.

Renovations will be completed Tuesday and the dogs not adopted by then will be returned to the center.
