October is national Adopt A Shelter Dog Month, and to make it easier for our community members to adopt a canine friend, the Porter County Animal Shelter has announced its CANINE CRAZE Reduced Fee Adoption Program! The Canine Craze kicks off on Tuesday, October 14th and runs through Sunday, November 8th. Adoption fees for ALL DOGS AT THE SHELTER will be discounted by 50% to $50. EVERY adoptable dog at the Shelter qualifies for the promotion.
“We wanted to bring attention to the national Adopt A Shelter Dog Month and help find forever homes for as many of the adoptable dogs at the Shelter as we possibly can,” stated Porter County Commissioner Laura Blaney. “With such a wide variety of ages, breeds and colors it is hard to imagine that our canine lovers won't be able to find that very special dog that they are looking for.”
Each adopting family is provided with a spay/neuter certificate, if applicable, that is honored by most local veterinarians. All potential adopters must complete an adoption application and are subject to the approval by Shelter staff. Most (but not all) of the adoptable dogs cats or kittens can be seen at www.petfinder.com or on the Shelter's Facebook page at http://tinyurl.com/PCASDogs
