Pet adoptions 50 percent off at Placer County’s Auburn shelter Oct. 3 – 15

Published on September 29, 2016

The fall adoption special is happening for the next two weeks at Placer County’s animal shelter in North Auburn. Facing a surplus of wagging tails, the county’s animal services center will reduce cat and dog adoption fees from Oct. 3 - 15. Dog adoptions - normally $121 plus a $20 licensing fee are just $60 (plus the $20 licensing fee). Cat adoption fees are reduced from $101 to $50 (no licensing fee). The reduced fee is only for animals one year and older.

“Fall weather means cooler temperatures in Placer County, a perfect time of year to enjoy the outdoors with a new family dog or bundling-up on the couch with a feline friend,” said Peggy Zarriello, assistant animal services director.

Dog adoption fees include the cost of the heartworm test (for dogs over 6 months); a first heartworm preventative pill; flea and tick prevention; a first distemper, parvo and bordetella vaccination; rabies vaccination (if over 4 months); deworming; microchipping; and spay or neuter procedures.

Cat adoption fees include the cost of a feline AIDS and leukemia test; a first feline distemper vaccination; deworming; rabies vaccination (if over 4 months); microchipping; and spay or neuter procedures.
