Huntsville Animal Services has many dogs and cats longing to be “Home For the Holidays.” To help Santa with these special deliveries, the Shelter is reducing adoption fees to $5 and $10 through Dec. 31.
If adoption is not an option, the shelter is offering an alternative: A “Holiday Foster Sleepover” with one of its loveable canines.
This will give the dogs a break from the shelter and the opportunity to socialize with you and your family. In turn, the home visit will provide the staff with valuable information about the dog’s behavior and preferences that will help complete the dog’s profile for a future adoption. The more the shelter learns about a pet’s personality, the better the opportunity to find a good match with a forever home.
Visit the website and search for adoptable pets under Adopt and Foster to complete a foster application.
The adoption includes the rabies and other vaccinations, microchip for pet identification, city license tag, spay or neuter sterilization, and a free bag of pet food as long as supplies last. There are some restrictions with the number of people entering the building but staff is on hand to help.
The Animal Shelter is at 4950 Triana Boulevard and is open Mondays and Wednesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Holiday hours vary. Check the website and Facebook for holidays.
