Cumberland County Animal Services is participating in the nationwide “Clear the Shelters” event from Sept. 13-18. During this week, adoption fees will be waived for all shelter pets.
The shelter is located at 4704 Corporation Drive in Fayetteville and will be open for adoptions from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 1-5 p.m. on Saturday. Adopters must have a photo ID and be at least 18 years old. All adoptions will be on a first-come, first-served basis and up to two pets can be adopted per household.
“We are expecting to have a busy week with a lot of adoptions,” said Animal Services Director Elaine Smith. “We’re excited to waive the fees again this year to encourage residents to adopt a shelter pet.”
Pet adoption fees are normally $100 for dogs and $70 for cats which include a rabies vaccination, deworming, flea treatment, combo vaccine, microchip, heartworm test (dogs only) and spay or neuter operation. Most of the animals at the event will have already been spayed or neutered. Animals that have not been spayed or neutered will not be able to leave the shelter until the procedure is complete.
