NEW PET ALERT: Huntsville Animal Services reducing adoption fees

Say hello to Gage and Grady (City of Huntsville)

The Huntsville Animal Services is slashing adoption fees to just $35 for most adult dogs and cats and $50 for puppies and kittens in an effort to reduce the growing number of at-risk pets at the kennels.

Each adoptable pet is vaccinated, spayed/neutered, microchipped and comes with a City license and free bag of pet food.

Can’t Adopt? Foster a Pet

If you can’t adopt right now, Huntsville Animal Services Director Karen Sheppard encourages residents to consider fostering a pet to provide a temporary respite from the shelter.

“Our sleepover program is a great way to host a pet while getting to know its positive qualities,” she said.  “Taking an animal out of a shelter situation can greatly improve its mental and emotional health. When foster parents provide photos and key information about the animal, it can also improve its chances of being adopted.”
