Pet adoption has been important to me for a long while — I’ve sponsored adoptions and fostering through Metro Animal Care and Control for years, spurred in part by my own experience with adopting a shelter dog. I adopted Ella a dozen years ago, and she’s been my best friend ever since.
So I not only want to help dogs like her find forever homes, but help neighbors bring that kind of love into their lives.
This month, I’d be glad to help pitch in to give friends and clients a chance to adopt, but I won’t need to — MACC is waiving the adoption fee on all dogs and cats six months or older, through Saturday, May 2.
The fact that you can take the cash you’d otherwise spend on the adoption fee and use it to spoil your new family member with toys and treats is a great bonus. But the reason behind the waiving is important: MACC is currently at capacity, and in order to take in more dogs and cats in need of homes, they really need to encourage some adoptions. So I’m encouraging too.
If you’ve been thinking about adding a new dog to your family, here’s some food for more thought: These pups are among the “extended stay” residents at MACC — they’ve been looking for their families for a while, and have a lot of love stored up to share. I wanted to introduce a few of them, in case one is the new friend you're looking for.
Pet ID: A117209
Perfect for you if: you’re looking for a bigger dog (she’s 50 pounds) who can hang when you’re active and when you just want your Netflix time.
