The Greenwood Humane Society is holding a pet adoption special this month with the hope that a lot of dogs and cats find good homes for the holidays.
On December 16 and 17, the regular $85 adoption fee for dogs and $50 for cats will be waived in a special they’re calling “Home Free for the Holidays.”
Their hope is that during this time of year, when most people are stretching their dollars to buy Christmas gifts for family and friends, that this special promotion will allow people to adopt new family pets. They encourage all potential adopters to be sure they’re ready for a new cat or dog to join their family and are committed to loving the pet for its entire life.
Even though the adoption fee will be waived, the animal’s vaccinations, heartworm or feline leukemia testing, spay or neuter, and microchip will still be included. Routine adoption processes will still apply.
The Greenwood County Animal Shelter is located at 235 Wilbanks Circle in Greenwood, behind the Greenwood Civic Center and Farmer’s Market. The Adoption Center’s hours of operation are 10:00a to 5:00p and adoption counselors can be reached at 864.942.8775 or by email.
Available pets can be seen on their website.
