HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) – If you’re looking to adopt or foster a furry friend this holiday season, Huntsville Animal Services (HAS) has a special offer for you!
Adult pets can be adopted for as little as $10, although certain exclusions apply. According to HAS, adoptable puppies and kittens are also available for as little as $50. This offer will be available until November 20.
For those unable to adopt, HAS offers foster programs, including a sleepover program that gives animals a chance to escape from the shelter for a few nights.
Pets are vaccinated, neutered, microchipped and come with a municipal license and a free bag of pet food. HAS Director Dr Karen Sheppard would like to enter the holiday season with as many empty kennels as possible.
“Families are often home during the holidays and it’s a great time to help relieve an animal’s stress, even if it’s just for a short time,” Sheppard said. “During the holidays, the dogs’ personalities and behaviors are noted, plus they sleep well. When they return, they are usually checked as well-mannered, well-behaved, good with children, and good with other dogs. This information is invaluable in pairing them with a person or family,” Dr. Sheppard said.
The animal shelter is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. HAS will be closed on November 25 and 26 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
