Step Right Up to Get Your $10 Cat/New Family Pet At Animal Control Adoption Event
From the Anne Arundel County Police Department:
Beginning on Tuesday (July 23), through Saturday (July 27), all cats 10 pounds or more at Animal Control are available for adoption for just $10. Due to the large amount of adoptable cats and kittens available for adoption at the shelter, Anne Arundel County Chief of Police Kevin Davis has given his approval for a special adoption promotion event at Anne Arundel County Animal Control.
The Chief of Police was given the authority to approve special adoption promotions in September of 2012 after the county council voted in favor of bill 72-12 proposed by Animal Control Administrator Robin Small. County Code Article 12 Title 4 Section 912(e) authorizes the Chief or his Designee to waive some or all adoption fees for a designated period of time. This will be the second time the shelter has utilized this promotional opportunity. The shelter has also had several adoption promotions made possible by an anonymous donor since the passage of this bill last year.
Chief Davis and Animal Control are hopeful this “10 for $10” adoption event will help the adult cats that are often overlooked by potential adopters find forever homes while simultaneously opening cages for the steady influx of cats kittens during the summer months. Animal Control needs the support of the community to make this event a success. Please open your hearts and your homes to these cats!
