If you’re looking for a new pet, next week is looking good, as Cumberland County Animal Services is waiving all adoption fees on all pets from June 13-18.
Animal Services sent out the release saying that they are losing a large amount of their housing capacity because of a resurfacing project, and the waived adoption fees has helped get more pets into loving homes in the past.
“Animal Services periodically will request to waive adoptions fees from the County Manager for a variety of reasons,” said Animal Services Director Elaine Smith. “We had remarkable success in May when we waived adoption fees ahead of the first phase of a state mandated floor resurfacing project.”
Cumberland County Animal Services is waiving the adoption fee for all pets June 13-18 at the Animal Services Center, 4704 Corporation Drive in Fayetteville.
“As the resurfacing project continues, we will again temporarily lose a significant amount of housing capacity. We are also full of cats and kittens this time of year,” Smith added. “We are hoping to adopt out as many pets as possible to loving homes to prevent having to potentially euthanize animals for lack of space.”
Shelter adoption hours are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.
According to Animal Services, all adopted pets will be vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed or neutered.
The $100 that is normally the adoption fee for dogs, and the $70 fee for cats can be spent on items like toys, a bed, or treats.
