According to Animal Shelter Humane Educator Jenna Keyes, there are approximately 64 animals available for adoption.
“We are extremely full right now, kind of packed to the brim, especially in the dog portion of our kennels. So we’re just really hoping for some great adoptions through this to help open up some space for incoming animals,” Keyes said. “This is a great time to come out and adopt… Plus what cat or dog isn’t going to look adorable in their Halloween costume coming up on the 31st.”
The “Bark-tober Fest Adopt-a-thon” special will run through Sunday. All cats and dogs over the age of seven will be free to adopt and pets under the age of seven will be $20.17.
“For adoption of the senior cats and dogs, everything is free, so adopting that animal would be free,” Keyes said. “We just always remind people that even though the adoption price is free, you do still have to consider providing for that animal’s basic needs and, with the senior dogs, there may be some additional vetting that may need to be done afterwards.”
