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.
Romie, ID No. 49996474, is a young, small, tri-colored beagle. He is about a year old and weighs approximately 25 pounds. He is mostly black and tan with flecks of brown and black in his white patches. He has had a distemper/parvo vaccine. Romie is calm, quiet and obedient. He walks well on a leash and does not pull. He will “sit” when asked. He is a sweet, friendly boy. Romie would be an awesome family pet!
We have a litter of four female kittens. They are about 8 weeks old. There are three with tortoiseshell coats. Their ID No.’s are 50059250, 50059257 and 50059263. The fourth is a little silver tabby, ID No. 50059270. They are all friendly, playful kittens. They can be adopted separately or together. They would be entertaining companions.
