Huntsville Animal Services Reduces Orphan Pet Fees for Home for the Holidays Promotion
Published on December 1, 2021
Huntsville Animal Services (HAS) wants to put furry friends into loving homes this holiday season and are cutting the fees to make it happen.
As part of its “Holiday Home” promotion, the HAS waives adoption fees on 25 different animals that will be presented on Facebook.com/HuntsvilleAnimalServices every day before Christmas. The launch of the promotion is Moore, a mixed breed who loves walks and other dogs.
HAS director Dr. Karen Sheppard said regular adoption fees are always subsidized to encourage adoptions. Most adult pet fees are waived at $ 35 and puppies and kittens are generally $ 50, although some exclusions apply.
“It’s this season that we hope families will open their homes and hearts to a shelter animal,” Sheppard said. “What better way to express the spirit of generosity and the love of the season than by giving a pet a fresh start? “

If adoption isn’t possible, Sheppard said the shelter’s sleepover program is a great way to house a pet while learning about its positive qualities. He also takes a dog or cat out of the noisy shelter for a brief period, which can greatly improve his mental and emotional health. When foster parents provide photos and key information about the animal, it can improve its chances of being adopted.
Each adoptable pet is vaccinated, spayed / neutered, microchipped, and comes with a municipal license and a free bag of pet food. Click here to see photos, ages and descriptions of available animals.
