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 a litter of three kittens — ID Nos. 47782571 and 47782573 are black and white male bobtail kittens. ID No. 47782566 is a black male kitten with a locket of white on his chest and a long tail. All have had their first in the series of kitten vaccines. They are approximately 3 months old. They have soft, fluffy coats of medium length. They are super friendly and playful. They can be adopted separately or together.

Second is ID No. 47742477, and volunteers have named him Allen. He is a large Rhodesian RidgebackGreat Dane/Retriever type mix. He weighs about 60 pounds but is a bit thin. He appears to be 3 to 4 years old. Don’t let the white on his muzzle fool you, he is not a senior. Allen is very friendly and enjoys attention. He walks well on leash but pulls a bit. He appears to get along well with other dogs. Allen is a handsome dog!
