October is ‘Adopt a Shelter Dog Month’ which makes it the perfect opportunity to celebrate and adopt a shelter dog. Animal Services along with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) will celebrate along with adopters using the hashtag Dogtober on social media. This is another great way to show the adoptable pets available at area shelters.

Adoption fees will be reduced on all dogs 6 months of age and older to just $40 for the entire month of October.

Name: Scarlet
ID#: A793288
Breed: Domestic Shorthair
Sex: Female
Age: One Year Old
Color: Brown Tabby
Comments: Scarlet is a sweet tabby that is quite shy at first, but will snuggle right up to you once she is out of her hut. She likes other cats and kittens so a home with other felines would suit her well as it will bring her out of her shell. And with our adopt one get a feline friend at no additional charge, Scarlet is a great pick! Her picture does not do her justice. Her coat coloring is very unique. Stop by our adoption center Monday- Saturday between 10:30-3:30 to see for yourself!
Adoption Fee: $10- adopt one get a feline friend at no additional charge!

Name: Brutus
ID#: A791257
Breed: Mastiff mix
Sex: Male
Age: Five Years Old
Color: Tan
Comments: Brutus is quite the handsome fellow and of course quite photogenic. He will pose for a photo at the drop of a hat. We think he was a model in his former life. He knows how to strike a pose like there’s nothing to it! Don’t let his size fool you, he is quite laid back and is more of a Netflix and chill on a Saturday night kind of guy.
Adoption Fee: $40
