Animal Services Waives Adoption Fees for Large Dogs

Apr 22, 2022

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – Cumberland County Animal Services is waiving the $100 adoption fee on large dogs through April 23 at the Animal Services Center, 4704 Corporation Drive in Fayetteville.

Only dogs over 30 lbs. are eligible. Adoptions will take place today from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.

“We have found that having adoption promotions like this are a great way to find good homes for our animals,” said Animal Services Director Elaine Smith.  “All of these dogs will be spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and dewormed, so this is a great way for an adopter to get a great family pet.”

“We do sometimes have people ask if ’free’ dogs are at risk of being abused, and we have found that this isn’t true – the fee paid doesn’t determine the amount of love for the pet,” Smith added.

The $100 that is normally the adoption fee can be spent on items like toys, a bed, or treats.
