County animal shelters lower pet adoption fees

'Home for the Holidays' programs lasts through Dec. 31

Animal shelters in Santa Clara County have lowered their adoption fees this month as part of the annual "Home for the Holidays" program.

Six shelters in the county have lowered their fees for most adoptions, which normally range from $90 to $120, to $12 for any adult cat or dog, according to Albert Escobar with Santa Clara County Animal Control.

The $12 fee covers all benefits such as spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation and registration, vaccinations, defleaing and deworming and FIV/FeLV testing for cats.

The shelters hope to find homes for more than 1,300 animals by New Year's Eve.

The program runs through Dec. 31. More information can be found at www.sccountypets.org.

Having adopted three cats, I can say that you should do yourself a favor and adopt. remember, a cat is an angel with fur!

Do you have any other type animals besides cats or dogs available? Rats, guinea pigs, rabbits? Just curious. All these precious animals sure appreciate a good loving home. @Konrad-Angels with fur. Too cute.
