It's Oscar weekend. Wouldn't it be nice to curl up on the couch with a furry friend to watch the awards show? Here are two pet adoption events that might be able to help you find that perfect pal. Who knows, maybe you'll meet the next movie star like Uggie ("The Artist") or Cosmo ("Beginners"). Both dogs were found at shelters.
