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 up is cat ID No. 45433109. She is a beautiful black and orange Tortoiseshell cat with a short, soft and smooth coat. She has large amber eyes that are constantly looking for adventure. She is approximately 3 months old, lean and athletic. She has had her first in the series of kitten vaccines. She is very friendly and super playful. She would be an entertaining companion.

Second is ID No. 45471682. They call him Stills. He was found with two others, Crosby and Nash. Crosby was pet of the week last week and is still available. Stills is a handsome yellow lab mix. He is a young adult, 1-2 years old. He weighs about 50 pounds. He is very friendly and gets along well with other dogs. He walks on leash. He’d be a devoted companion.
