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. 45419234. This girl is a beautiful Calico Tabby mix with black, gold and white of a calico and stripes on her legs and face like a tabby cat. Her large almond shaped eyes are green. She is very friendly and affectionate. She is attentive and likes to play. She would be a fun companion.

Second is ID No. 45441637. They call her Arya and she is a very cute little cattle dog type mix. She is about 6 months old and weighs about 30 pounds. Her coat is brindle and white, and she has chocolate brown eyes and stand up ears. She is very friendly and playful, and appears to get along well with other dogs. She already walks on a leash and would be a great family pet!
