According to the 1973 hit song it was "Midnight at the Oasis." But in this case it was Midnight at the shelter! And instead of sending camels to bed, it was dogs and cats! Midnight, a three-year-old Labrador Retriever-Chow Chow mix, showed up as a stray at the Duplin County Animal Shelter in North Carolina on August 10th. Midnight's owner was contacted, but he never came to claim Midnight. As a black dog in a small rural shelter, Midnight's time was very limited.
