Andrea Kolwyck looks at a Malamute that is up for adoption at the Barstow Humane Society on Thursday afternoon. Kolwyck was at the shelter to look at dogs for adoption and check to see if her brothers dog was at the shelter.

    "I just want to take all of them home," said Kolwyck.

    Elena Rodriguez, the manager at the humane society, said the shelter has had a recent influx of puppies and kittens. She added that it was unusual to have so many young animals in the winter, because normally most animals are born in the spring.
