The $10 adoption fees begin August 20 and end September 1. Regular adoption fees are $90 for dogs and will resume Monday, September 3. Cat adoption fees will stay at $10 through September 21.

If you can't adopt a pet, consider fostering which helps the shelter free up critical kennel space. The shelter provides the pet food and any necessary medical care.
