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. 46384675. Volunteers have named her Adora. She is a beautifully-marked fawn and white Tabby. She has a short smooth coat with stripes and spots, a white chest, feet and a white tip on her tail. She has the classic tabby “M” on her forehead. Her large round eyes are golden in color. She is lean and athletic. Adora is super friendly and affectionate. She is playful, too! She would make an entertaining companion.

He is mostly black with a small strip of white on his chest and some white on his left front toes. His eyes are chocolate brown. AJ is very friendly and playful. He walks well on leash. He would be a fun companion.
