DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Would you pay a dollar to kiss a dog? That’s what people are doing at the State Fair of Texas and it’s all for a good cause.

An animal adoption booth has been set up at the State Fair and right next to it you’ll find a Dog Kissing Booth.

“Depending on the time of day and who’s in it, we’ll have everybody from puppies to pit bulls in the kissing booth and they’re accepting donations for kisses,” explained Jim Wenger, with DFW Rescue Me.

According to Wenger, the booth is very popular. “Men, women, children… you name it. Everybody’s enjoying having a kiss with a doggie.”

This is the first time the State Fair of Texas has allowed a pet adoption booth on the premises. Dallas Animal Services has teamed up with DFW Rescue Me to run the booths this year.

“We’ve got a dog for everybody, every size and every personality,” Wenger said.

So far, homes have been found for 70 dogs and Wenger is hoping to adopt out 70 more by the time the fair comes to an end a week from Sunday.

The adoption booth and Dog Kissing Booth are by the Centennial Building, next to the Arts and Crafts tent.
