Fall in love with a dog or cat at Woods Humane Society this Valentine’s Day! With our animal shelter partners overcrowded and in need of help, we're encouraging SLO County families to consider adopting a pet during our “Love is in the Air” adoption special. This promotion reduces adoption fees for all adult animals to just $14 from February 1 to February 14, 2022.
“While our own county has seen fewer strays in recent months, communities nearby are struggling to keep up with the number of animals coming in to their facilities. On top of that surge, this is the time of year when the entire region begins preparing for an influx of spring and summer litters of homeless puppies and kittens,” says Woods Humane Society CEO Neil Trent. “With that in mind, we have lowered the adoption fees for this time with the hope of reducing barriers to finding loving homes for these animals and to open up space to help more dogs and cats running out of time in more impacted shelters.”
Regular adoption fees for adult dogs and cats at Woods Humane Society range from $65 to $150. All animals have been spayed or neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, licensed, and treated for fleas and other parasites prior to adoption. Adoptions also include a free veterinary exam and 30 days of pet health insurance (if adopters choose to enroll). Woods spends $800 on the care of each animal, on average, and relies on the support of the community to cover costs and make sure that each animal receives the best care possible.
To view the animals currently available for adoption, visit www.WoodsHumane.org/Adoptions or visit either of our locations, open daily with adoption hours from 12-4 p.m. and closing at 5 p.m. For more information, call (805) 543-9316.
