In honor of the courage of the 13 original colonies that led to Independence, we’re dropping our adoption fees to $13 for the whole month for many of the pets waiting for new homes.
The special rate will apply to adult cats and to all of our dogs that are 40 pounds or more.
All other pets will be $50, which is still a great deal considering all of our animals leave with vaccinations, microchips and spay/neuter surgery.
There is one caveat. For a two-hour window on the July 4 holiday itself, our adoption center will be open! The adoption fee for every single animal, no matter size or age, will be $13 between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Keep in mind that the Fourth of July, with all of its whines and booms and hisses, can be a stressful time for animals.
Please secure your pet in his or her familiar surroundings. But if your pet happens to get lost, please be sure to check with our shelter, 4000 N. Silverbell Road, as well as with the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, 3450 N. Kelvin Blvd.
Also please check online at http://www.petharbor.com and http://www.found-pets.org/, which are clearinghouses for found pets throughout Pima County, compiling lists from our shelter and the general community. You should also visit the Lost and Found Pets of Pima County and Lost Dogs Arizona Facebook pages, as well as checking Craigslist.
Have a safe and celebratory Fourth and come see if your lucky charm is waiting for you.
