You can add a furry friend to your family this summer for the bargain price of $20.
The Austin Animal Center is reducing its adoption fees for all animals to $20 for the month of June.
This reduced fee includes the animal’s spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip, and identification tags.
The Austin Animal Center currently has a record amount of dogs and cats in their care, with more than 600 animals being cared for at the shelter and 500 more receiving temporary care in foster homes.
Many of these animals came to the center as very young puppies and kittens, and are now old enough for adoption. The center is now ready to find a loving home for each and every one of them.
"There’s never been a better time to adopt,” stated Abigail Smith, Chief Animal Services Officer. “With so many healthy and adoptable animals in our care, we know we can find everyone a perfect match for their home.”
This reduced fee applies to all animals ready for adoption at the Austin Animal Center, and it is waived altogether for animals over the age of five.
All pets available for adoption or lost pets can be viewed at www.austinanimalcenter.org.
Both shelter locations are open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. For more information go to www.austinanimalcenter.org, call 3-1-1, or visit www.facebook.com/austinanimalservices for daily animal updates.
