Everyone wants to be home for the holidays, yet for dozens of animals in Kent County, the holidays will be spent in the animal shelter. Let’s work to change that! After a very successful partnership with Vicky’s Pet Connection in October, the Kent County Animal Shelter is teaming up with VPC again, this time for “Home for the Holidays,” a special adoption event created to help more homeless pets find homes during the month of December.
Starting December 5 and going through December 17, the shelter will be offering adoptions for a discounted rate. Dog adoptions, which usually range from $81 to $180, will only be $50! Cat adoption fees that usually range from $50 to $120, will only be $25. This fee includes, testing, shots, spay and neutering, licensing and even microchipping.
This is an excellent opportunity to find the pet you have been searching for just before the holidays! The shelter can be reached at 616.632.7300; hours are Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to 12 noon. Adoptions must be made one hour before the shelter closes.
Currently, the shelter has a selection of several dozen kittens, cats and dogs, ready for loving homes. Consider making this the best Holiday season possible for these friendly little fur balls and the families that will benefit from the joy of owning a fun loving pet!
