The Humboldt County Animal Shelter is offering reduced-rate adoptions for dogs this week as part of their Valentine’s Day “Sweetheart Special.”
Due to the shelter’s dog kennels nearing capacity, adoption fees for all adult dogs (6 months and older) have been reduced to $50 and puppies (less than 6 months) have been reduced to $80. Cats remain at their regular adoption price. Adoptable dogs are neutered or spayed, microchipped, up to date on shots and temperament tested. Some dogs also have had obedience training classes.
The animal shelter’s currently available, adoptable pets are listed online and updated daily at 24petconnect.com. Members of the public are asked to first fill out an adoption application, located at humboldtsheriff.org/adopt, and then call the Shelter at 707-840-9132 to make an appointment to visit.
The Humboldt County Animal Shelter is located at 980 Lycoming Ave in McKinleyville, and is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m., and Tuesday and Thursdays from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.
