"We're just trying to bring awareness to homeless animals. So by bringing them here to the Aquarium, the public is coming out and seeing that there are many animals that still need homes, so we're trying to shuffle them towards the shelter so that maybe they can bring home their forever animal," said Lauren Silliphant, animal caretaker at the adoption center.
