The event was planned by Wedding Festivals and Upstate Bridal Association, according to the shelter.

Sassy and Spero have been together since Sassy started her heartworm treatment, according to the shelter.

“Every heartworm positive dog will have their treatment covered in full, making it easier than ever to adopt a heartworm positive dog,” the shelter posted on Facebook.

This tradition of doggy weddings has gone on for multiple years, with last year’s couple being Honey and Duke. Adoptions are free during the week of the wedding.
