Now is an excellent time to expand your family.
Due to the influx of new arrivals at the Halifax Humane Society, HHS is putting out a call for all potential adopters to act now. If you have been thinking about getting a pet, especially a cat, this is the perfect time.
Kitten season is predominately May through September, and shelters across the country typically have full kennels. HHS is nearing capacity.
“Our in-take of animals (especially cats) has substantially increased over the last 30-days and we are just a few animals away from being at capacity,” said Barry KuKes, HHS Community Outreach Director. “We are making every effort to transfer animals to other rescues and shelters, but many are also at capacity. We urge people thinking of adopting an animal to come to HHS now and consider one of the animals currently available and ready to go.”
KuKes said there is a large selection of cats and dogs at the shelter. The younger animals, kittens and puppies, tend to be adopted quickly, but during the summer, especially during holiday weeks adoptions tend to slow down”, said
Through the end of July, HHS will give a 50% discount on the adoption of any dog or cat one-year or older. Adoption fees will be discounted 25% for kittens and puppies that are less than a year.
