Special Adoption Rates are Hoped to Increase Adoptions
The Montgomery County Animal Shelter is experiencing high intake rates, this coupled with the shelter’s goal of keeping dogs and cats for as long as it takes for them to find homes, leaves the staff with tough decisions. Staff and volunteers are asking themselves, “Which ones can I save?” and “Do I remain committed to a dog that has been housed at the shelter since February or focus my attention on the Australian Heeler puppies that just walked through the door?”
In an effort to alleviate the need to make such decisions, the shelter has aggressively courted adopters with adoption specials including half-price cats and kittens and half-price dogs. Throughout the summer, Montgomery County Animal Shelter is offering up discounted adoption rates with special adoption promotions. All felines are half-off during the “Desperate Housecats” promo. Or take home two cats or kittens for the price of one! Cats and kittens who are regularly $70 can be adopted for just $35, while long-term cats can be yours for just $12.50.
In conjunction with the Grand Opening of the Lone Star Animal Welfare League’s Rescue Me Dog Park, being held Saturday, May 19 at the shelter, dogs are getting on the great deals too! During Friday through Sunday, May 18-20, all dogs are half-price their original fee. Dogs and puppies that are regularly $80 can be adopted for just $40, while long-term dogs can be yours for just $12.50.
