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.
Sookie, ID No. 48725176, was surrendered by a family that could no longer keep him. He is a young adult, approximately 1 year old, and weighs about 50 pounds. His coat is a handsome gold and black tiger stripe brindle with a splotch of white on his chest. He has received a distemper/parvo vaccine. Sookie walks well on a leash, and will “sit” and “lie down” when asked. He is good with children and appears to get along well with other dogs. Sookie would make a great addition to any family.
Kaylee, ID No. 48876905, was found by a Good Samaritan and was brought to the shelter to rescue. Kaylee had a can stuck on her head! She is a beautiful grey tabby mix with a silky medium length coat. She has white socks on her front paws and white boots on her hind legs. She has the classic tabby “M” on her forehead. Kaylee has tufts of fur sprouting from her ears, long white whiskers and a bottle brush tail. She has beautiful green eyes. She is friendly and affectionate. She is a quiet, curious girl who also likes to play. She would be a beautiful, quiet companion.
