Fort Myers, FL, July 28, 2014 — As Lee County Domestic Animal Services approaches August, the agency’s facility is exceeding capacity. At three months into kitten season the shelter’s intake of cats and kittens has not slowed down but adoptions for both dogs and cats have. To boost adoptions Animal Services will offer a variety of discounts on adoption fees during their “Endless Summer” adoption promotion.
During the promotion, which will run the entire month of August, any dog six months or older may be adopted for $45. The fee to adopt a heartworm positive dog will be just $10 including the cost of treatment. All kittens under six months old will be $25 and cats over six months may be adopted for only $8. In addition adopters can get a second cat or kitten at no charge.
The “Endless Summer” adoption fees are 40 to 50 percent off the regular cost to adopt and include the following:
- Spay/neuter surgery
- Age-appropriate vaccinations
- Rabies vaccination and county license for pets over 3 months
- 10-day pet health guarantee
- Microchip ID
- Feline Leukemia and Aids test for cats
