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. 48603757. Volunteers have named him Blaze. He is a chocolate and white Boxer/Bulldog type mix. Blaze is about 2 years old. He appears to already be neutered but will need a veterinarian to confirm. He walks well on a leash and will sit when asked. He is very friendly and appears to be okay with other dogs. Blaze would be a great family pet.
Second is ID No. 48611987, and volunteers have named her Latte. She is a beautiful Domestic medium hair. She is mostly white with brown patches that contain stripes like a tabby. She has tufts of hair sprouting from her ears and a long fluffy tail. She has had her first in the series of kitten vaccines. Latte is very friendly and loves attention. She is playful, too. Latte would be a loving companion.
