For the ENTIRE month of August, my Adoption Fee (and ALL the other dogs, too) is ONLY $42.50!! That's half of the normal fee AND it still includes my shots, yucky deworming medicine, and neuter surgery (I don't really know what that means, but the Shelter Lady told me to say it)!! The Shelter Lady also says I have to tell you that CATS (yuck!) are half price, too, which is only $28. Bet you're wondering why CATS are less than DOGS . . . It's because cats are LESS than dogs!
