Due to grants from Zappos.com, the Best Friends Animal Society, and the Verona Street Animal Society, adoption fees will be waived for cats and dogs at the center to encourage shelter adoptions, and place pets in permanent homes, city officials stated.
The event will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Friday, Nov. 27, through Monday, Nov. 30. The shelter will be closed Sunday, Nov. 29.
Saturday, Dec. 5, there will be another fee-waived adoption event for all cats and dogs in conjunction with a Lifesaving Impact grant from the Petco Foundation.
And, for the entire month of December (excluding the Dec. 5 promotion), officials said adoptions for cats over one year of age will be $25, and all dog adoptions will be discounted 50 percent.
Regular adoption fees start at $90 for cats, and $138.50 for dogs.
According to officials, individuals should remember to bring a collar, leash or pet carrier to ensure that pets can leave the day of the event and make it to their new homes safely.
