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.

      Think hard about the things you’ve licked or put in your mouth…or the mouth of your significant others. Dogs’ mouths are FAR cleaner.

    2. Donna Gehrig Duschl says:

      A dogs mouth is cleaner than your a$$ !!!

  2. Bob Dobbs says:

    Leviticus 18:23
    And you shall not lie with any animal and so make yourself unclean with it, neither shall any woman give herself to an animal to lie with it: it is perversion.

    Deuteronomy 27:21
    “‘Cursed be anyone who lies with any kind of animal.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’

    This is bestaility! This is what our society has come to! It’s the end times! The apocalypse is upon us! SAVE US, JEBUS! BASANDA BASOYA CHALUPA! HALLEBALOOYAH!!!!

      Are you kidding me? Are you nuts? You never let your family pet lick your hand or your cheek in affection. You are sick. You probably think a little girl sitting in her father’s lap is “dirty” too. Me thinks though doth protest too much. What tendencies are you battling inside?

      1. Bob Dobbs says:

        Jesus Christ, lady, it’s called humor. You know what humor is, yes? Read it again. The nutty “speaking in tongues” part and misspelling of Jesus should have tipped you off. You’re not the brightest bulb in the chandelier, are you?

        I really can’t believe this mongoloid thought your comment was serious. I was laughing my ass off when I saw “Jebus” and “chalupa”! I bet if you took her brain and rolled it down the edge of a razor blade, it would look like a BB going down a 4-lane highway! I think I laughed harder at her than at your hilarious first comment. LOL! Some people…

      3. LOL @ U says:

        It’s THOU, you half-wit, not THOUGH. No humor AND no education.

      4. Misogynistic B@st@rd says:

        What a dumb broad. Can you imagine being in a relationship with that ding-a-ling dame?

    2. P Torres says:

      You are crazy!!!! Brother Bob

  3. dumbanddumber says:

    Poor Bob. He tried to convey the concept of a joke to a PETA extremist and she BLEW up in his face. How predictable. Sorry Bob. Hope it heals.

    1. Bob Dobbs says:

      I’m putting some deer blood on the wound as I type this, in honor of our PETA friend.

  4. Jusitn says:

    Bestaility joke aside, am I the only one that that got grossed out by the photo?? I mean is that slobber streak from the dude or the dog…either way I hurled alittle!!!!!

    1. Marta Scott says:

      LOL – it’s the camera angle & lighting. That is one of the dog’s whiskers – not a slobber strand..

  5. YRofTexas says:

    How can anyone enjoy kissing an animal on the same lips that licks their private parts? Bacteria galore!
    These animal lovers sometimes go a little too far.
    I’d pay to NOT be subjected to this activity!

    1. Raven says:

      Same reason why you kiss your family members with the same mouth that I am sure has had someone else’s private parts on it…. or your own if you are that talented.

      1. Bob Dobbs says:

        If I was that talented, I’d never leave the house!

      2. P Torres says:

        Way to go bro, excellent bro

    2. Justin says:

      YRofTexas I’m with you.. that is NASTY….. and Raven I’m suspicios w/ ur come back… with that justification are you ok with then licking a dogs private parts??? I’m just saying!!!

  6. darrell says:

    im just glad its dogs. when i first read the title i thought it was about the first lady.

    (i look forward to your hate mail, thankyou.)

    1. Justin says:

      wa. wa wa….darrell this is a fun story to poke at with out having to drag in politics or race!!!!! For once can we just make fun of dog “lovers”

      1. darrell says:

        maybe your right justin. i applogize to all you lovers of four legged dogs. personaly i dont let my face get anywhere near a dog until after its been properly marinated and BBQ’d.

      2. Bob Dobbs says:

        Darrell is a Korean name? I’ll be damned.

      3. darrell says:

        LOL, too funny! spent some time there though. had a lot of fun, great food. great homemade rice beer.

      4. Bob Dobbs says:

        I’m a huge fan of Korean food. If you go over near Carrollton, there’s a great area in the northwest corner of Old Denton and the Bush Tollway with some killer restaurants and a huge supermarket called H Mart. Go eat at Omi, they have a great all-you-can-eat thing where you cook your own beef and pork right there at the table for just under $20 per person.

      5. darrell says:

        thanks for the info bob. ill have to make the trip.

  7. Elmer says:

    Kissing animals is nasty and unhealthy. Anyone that lets their child kiss an animal should be throw in jail.

    1. John W Rosa says:

      Anyone agreeing with Elmer should be thrown in school.

  8. Dani says:

    I’m sure you’re all going to freaked out the fact that I let my dogs kiss me all the time and I’m a perfectly healthy, well adjusted adult!

  9. Crystal Gayle Moore says:

    I kiss my pit all the time…and then last year I got a type of meningitis from him, which he had caught from a mouse in the field outside our house. I was in the hospital for nearly a month, and he was sick for at least three. Both of us almost died. Now I do my best to not kiss Winston Peabody!

    1. Bob Dobbs says:

      You nearly earned a Darwin Award. Congrats!
