Pet Adoptions Down Due To Cold Weather
The cold weather is having a chilling effect on pet adoptions at the Animal Humane Society. The organization typically sees a downturn in pet adoptions this time of year because people are busy with the holidays and last-minute weekend adventures before it gets too cold. Currently, they have a large population of dogs, including puppies, that are up for adoption.
“We do serve about 140 to 170 canines a week from other shelters that wouldn’t have access to the great outcomes, where they do here at the Animal Humane Society,” explained spokesperson Anne Lally-Rose
The Animal Humane Society is hosting an adult dog adoption open house on November 9, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. They’ll have kid-friendly activities, and pet training demos from experts. You can also buy Animal Humane Society merchandise like mugs and t-shirts. And you can learn more about how the organization works with behind-the-scenes tours. The event will be at the group’s Golden Valley location, 845 Meadow Lane N. It’s open to everyone, whether you plan to adopt a dog or not.
If you want to make a forever home for a fur baby, it can cost anywhere from $200 to $600, depending on the breed. Those fees include spay/neuter surgery, vaccines, and more.
