LEE COUNTY, Fla. - August marks the dogs days of summer and this is also a month long adoption promotion at Lee County Domestic Animal Services. The Dog (and cat) Days of Summer is also tied in to Lee County's year-long celebration of its 125th anniversary.
Beginning today and running through the month of August, the pet adoption center is running special rates to encourage people to take home a new pet. You can take home an adult cat or dog for only $8, kittens for just $20, or a puppy or small breed dog for $50 each. Cats and kittens are also two for the price of one.
As Lee County celebrates 125 years since separating from Monroe County in 1887, LCDAS hopes to adopt out 125 cats and 125 dogs during the "Dog Days" promotion. Adoption fees will be reduced, but not the adoption package the pet adoption center always offers. All pets receive sterilization, age appropriate vaccinations, county license, microchip ID, de-worming, flea treatment, a heartworm test for dogs, feline aids and leukemia test for cats. You also get a 10 Day Health Guarantee, and a bag of Hill's Science Diet dog or cat food. The adoption package is valued at over $500!
You can always check out the animals up for adoption at the LCDAS website, LeeLostPets.com. You can find out more information about the adoption process on the website, or by calling (239) 533-7387 (LEE-PETS).
