Jones: Consider Adopting From Local Shelter
Published 10/21/2010 in Podcasts
The Telegram's Diane Elliott talks with Danna Jones, a Finney County Humane Society volunteer, about the need for people to adopt from the Garden City/Finney County Animal Shelter, 124 Fleming St.
The Humane Society usually takes several animals to Denver each month to save the animals from euthanasia, but the Dumb Friends League in Denver also has too many adoptable animals. So that facility is not taking the animals from Finney County.
That means more animals are at risk for euthanasia if they aren't adopted locally. Cost to adopt depends on whether the animal is already spayed or neutered. For dogs, the cost to adopt if spayed or neutered is $30. To adopt a male dog not neutered, it's $130. To adopt a female dog not spayed, it's $160. To adopt a cat not spayed or neutered, it's about $30 cheaper than the dog prices, Jones said.
To encourage adoptions, the Humane Society is going to have about a dozen animals spayed and neutered within the next week or so to help decrease the cost of the adoption. Check The Telegram for more information about that.
Visit the shelter between noon and 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday at 124 Fleming St.
