Polk County Animal Control wants to make sure that pets within the shelter have every opportunity of finding forever homes.
Officials have reduced the adoption fees for cats for the time being to help encourage adoptions. The fee for cat adoptions is now $10. The adoption fee for dogs remains $40.
First is ID No. 46106959 and volunteers have named him Leo. He is a cute orange tabby kitten with a fluffy white chest. His almond shaped eyes are amber in color. Leo is 8 to 10 weeks old and has received his first in the series of kitten vaccines. He is very friendly and playful. A fun kitten!
Second is ID No. 46151222 and her name is Molly. She was brought to the shelter by her owner who could no longer care for her. She is a 2-year-old lab-type mix. Her coat is of medium length and is a smoky black color. She weighs about 50 pounds. She is a little intimidated by the noise and activity of the shelter but is friendly and sweet. She walks well on leash and enjoys attention. Molly is a very nice dog.
