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. 48102311. Volunteers have named him Jason. He is a 9-week-old black and white tuxedo kitten. His coat is short and has sparse white hairs distributed throughout the black. He has had his first in the series of kitten vaccines. Jason is very friendly and playful. He would make a loving, entertaining companion.
Second is ID No. 48095038. This beautiful Husky mix was recently picked up as a stray and has not as yet been named. She is a young adult, 1-2 years old. She is mostly black with some tan and white markings. Her eyes are ice blue. She walks well on leash and will sit when asked. She appears to get along with other dogs. She would make a great family pet.
