Pet Adoptions In Full Swing For Holidays

It was one of the Humane Society's busiest times of the year. Dozens of prospective pet owners were in search for the perfect addition to their family for this holiday season. In order to help find these animals a new home the humane society reduced the price of adoptions to 50% off for dogs six months or older. It was the final day to name your own price for the adoption of cats.

"There's a lot of unwanted pets and its sad so today this is our way of contributing," said Amy Killion. The Humane Society provides every adopted animal with health tests and also recommends inserting microchips into your pets necks before the holidays. "With the fireworks going off throughout the new year, the animals freak out with all the noise and they tend to run away," Adoption Supervisor Violet Iuta said.

A micro-chip contains the contact information of the pet's owner. In the case that a pet gets lost, the microchip can help insure that every lost pet can be returned to its owner. Micro-chips cost on average anywhere from $15 to $30 dollars. The humane society offers the placement of microchips for $5 dollars if you adopt an animal from their facility.
