Puppy season is in full swing and the HSSA shelter is near capacity with three to four dogs to a kennel.
To reach adoption numbers comparable to last year HSSA will need to find homes for 2,000 animals over the next couple of months. To help reach this goal the main shelter will be open Easter Sunday with adoption specials including $5 dogs and cats.
“We are at a critical stage. Kennels are filling up quickly, and we take in a constant flow of animals daily. There are hundreds of dogs and cats who need homes, ” says Lyndsay Bruno, public relations lead.
As part of the adoption fee, the HSSA Spay and Neuter Clinic will microchip, vaccinate, and sterilize each adopted animal. Also included is a bag of food and a free visit to the veterinarian of their choice. Foster families are also needed to care for litters of puppies and kittens, and overflow from the shelter.
The HSSA is located at 3450 North Kelvin Blvd. Shelter hours are Mon. – Sat. 11 am to 6 pm and noon to 5 pm Easter Sunday. For more information contact the Humane Society at 327-6088, or visit the website.
