It may be raining cats and dogs outside, but the real animal news is being made by the folks at the Dallas Animal Services. Due to the fact that they’re operating at 90% capacity and are predicted to be on track to follow last year’s intake of 32,000 animals, they’re reducing adoption fees.
Dogs were going for $85 and are now available for $45. Instead of $55, cats can be had for a mere $35.
And the deal is really even better than it sounds. Not only do you get a BFF, but the fee covers spay/neuter, microchipping and vaccinations. Why, spaying/neutering alone is a three-figure fee at most vet clinics.
According to DAS Director Ed Jamison, “Dallas has one of the highest intake numbers in the country, so we are working very hard to find homes for every happy, healthy animal that comes into our care. We average over 70 dog intakes a day, and kitten season is right around the corner. If lowering the everyday adoption price helps one of our animals find their perfect home, it is worth it.”
These new discounts are good seven days a week at the DAS main facility on Westmoreland, as well as the PetSmart Everyday Adoption Center on Coit Road.
And there are even additional specials like the following
- $20 for any dog over six years, or for adopters over 65 years
- $15 for any cat over six years, or for adopters over 65 years
- Free adoptions every day for animals that have been up for adoption for more than 14 days!
