October 21, 2011 > Woof-Fest
October is National Pet Adoption Month. The staff at the Tri-City Animal Shelter will celebrate this event by offering half-price dog adoptions for one week, October 22 - 29th. During this week only, our adoptions fees will be $80, not including applicable city license fees.
According to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, between five and seven million companion animals enter shelters every year. Animals are admitted to a shelter because they are lost, abandoned, or picked up by animal control. Without people willing to take lost or abandoned animals into their homes, many of the wonderful dogs we see on a daily basis wouldn't be here.
Dogs of all ages and breeds are available through adoption at our shelter. Most people want to adopt puppies, but older pets should not be discounted. They are just as loving and can be a wonderful addition to a family. Since older animals are more quiet and most likely already trained, bringing an older pet into the home might make for an easier transition for the whole family.
If you are considering adopting a dog in the near future, please help us celebrate National Pet Adoption Month during our "Woof-Fest" event by saving a life. To view some of the available pets go to www.petharbor.com or visit the Tri-City Animal Shelter.
