October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and Orange County Animal Services is reducing the adoption fee to $60 for select dogs throughout the month.
Adopt a Shelter Dog Month is a national event created by American Humane Association that aims to reduce the number of homeless dogs and puppies in shelters by raising awareness about adopting and about dog ownership and care.
In celebration of this annual event, Animal Services has reduced the adoption fee for most dogs by half, making the fee for a fully vaccinated, spayed/neutered and vet checked dog only $60. Once a dog is selected to be part of the celebration, its adoption fee will remain $60 for the entire month of October.
Visit us online to find out more about Dog Adoption Month, its events or to see photos and descriptions of adoptable animals—including dogs that are available for the reduced adoption fee. You can also visit us in person at 1601 Eubanks Road in Chapel Hill.
