During the upcoming cold winter months, everyone could use a furry companion to keep them warm. And Metro Animal Services (MAS) has just the friend for you! To encourage people into adopting a furry lap warmer or bed buddy, MAS is offering a cold weather companion discount from now until Saturday, January 30. Adopters will receive a $60 discount off of the adoption fees for all dogs and puppies (fees normally range from $135 - $200) six months old or older and a $30 discount for cats and kittens (fees normally range form ($85 - $125) six months old or older. All animals come with a full adoption package, which includes spaying or neutering, rabies vaccination and license, preventative vaccinations, deworming, heartworm or feline leukemia test, a microchip and $100 in coupons.
“The shelter is full of dogs and cats of all shapes and sizes, all ready to keep cuddle up with you and keep you warm. We have an especially large selection of Beagles, Jack Russells, Chihuahuas and your ‘always in style’, basic black dogs,” said Jackie Gulbe, assistant director for community relations. “In the free roaming cat and kitten rooms you can choose from every kitty color and pattern imaginable.”
