Discounted Animal Adoption Fees

Alachua County Department of Animal Resources & Care is celebrating the 25 days of Christmas with adoption specials. For December, their adoption fees of $20 for cats and $40 for dogs are being discounted to equal the date of adoption ($1 on December 1, $2 on December 2, etc.). The earlier in December that an animal is adopted, the lower the adoption fee. All dogs and cats will go home with a goody bag ready to open on Christmas. The Animal Resources & Care shelter (3400 N.E. 53rd Avenue, Gainesville) is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

“We are hoping to get as many shelter pets into homes as possible this holiday season,” said Director Ed Williams. “What can be greater than providing animals with much-needed homes and people with the unconditional love of a new furry friend.” 

Pet adopters must be 18 or older and show identification with proof of current address. If there are already pets in the home, the potential adopter must show proof that owned animals are current on rabies and county licenses. All adoptable cats and dogs are examined, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, and microchipped before going home.
