Witch Will You Get? Orange and Black Animal Adoption Special

What’s orange and black, and celebrated all over? Halloween! And in honor of the big day, County Animal Services is offering a half-price adoption special on all dogs and cats that have orange or black fur, or even just a splash of those colors.

The special starts Tuesday, Oct. 24 and runs through Halloween, Tuesday, Oct. 31, at all three of the County’s animal shelters. They are open from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday. Adoptions close at 4:30 p.m.

Adoption fees for applicable dogs will be $35 and those for cats will be $29. Those fees include spaying or neutering, a microchip, current vaccinations and a free veterinary exam within the first 10 days of adoption. Adult dogs will also get a 1 year free license.

You can check to see which animals are available for adoption on Animal Services’ website.
