“We have some great dogs and cats of all ages and sizes that are in need of a forever home,” said Graham Price, animal services director. “This event was created in order to help get animals adopted by waiving the adoption fee for animals that have been at the shelter for 30 days or longer. If you have room in your household for a dog or cat please consider adopting and contacting the shelter.”

All animals that leave the shelter are spayed, neutered, and vaccinated. This adoption event only applies to pets at the shelter, not for cats located at PetSmart locations. Other dogs and cats that are new to the shelter are available for adoption for an adoption fee of $65.00.
