October is “Adopt a Shelter Dog Month.” Lee County Domestic Animal Services will celebrate along with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and adopters using #Dogtober on social media. This is great way to show the adoptable pets available at area shelters.
Adoption fees will be reduced on all dogs 4 months of age and older to just $30 for the entire month of October. Cats and kittens will be just $10 with an approved application.
The adoption package includes spay or neuter, microchip, up-to-date vaccinations, county license and a 10-day health guarantee. This is a package valued at $600. Volunteers and staff are waiting to introduce a new family member. Just stop by 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday at the adoption center, 5600 Banner Drive in Fort Myers.
