Indianapolis Animal Care & Control, together with its sponsors are currently reducing pet adoption fees and offering other bonuses for people adopting a pet from their shelter before June 11. (That’s tomorrow, which is also the date for Just One Day, a nationwide initiative that asks shelters to suspend the killing of adoptable animals for 24 hours.)
IACC pet adoption fees will be reduced to $50 during this period. In addition to the discount, each adopter will also receive a $20 gift card to Pet Supplies Plus, other bonus pet gifts, and an entry into a drawing for a $100 Pet Supplies Plus gift card to be awarded at the end of the Adopt-a-thon.
Adoption fees cover spaying or neutering, age-appropriate vaccinations, dewormer, microchipping with a year’s Home Again membership, FIV and feline leukemia testing for cats, and heartworm testing for dogs.
“We also urge people who are having trouble caring for their pets to consult the Rescue Rally Resource Directory for help,” says Warren Patitz of move to ACT. “Please don’t give up your pet to a shelter. Help is available, whether the issue is financial, behavioral, or health-related.” The Directory is available at www.movetoact.org .
