County Reduces Pet Adoption Fees for December

The county Animal Management Division is offering $100 off the adoption of cats and dogs all month long.

Christmas could come early for some shelter animals thanks to the Prince George’s County Animal Management Division (AMD).

Through the month of December, AMD is inviting residents to adopt dogs and cats at reduced fees as part of its “All I Want for the Holidays is...You.”

“Fulfill the holiday wish of a homeless animal at the Animal Services Facility by giving them the gift of a loving home,” Rodney Taylor, associate director of AMD, said in press release.  “I encourage you to visit the Facility this holiday season to find the perfect pet for your family.”

Dog adoption fees will be $100, a savings of $100; and cat adoption fees will be $45, also a $100 savings, according to the press release. AMD will also waive adoption fees for a second kitten or cat if you adopt two at once. Adoption fees include the cost of microchip, vaccinations, a county pet license and spay/neuter surgery.

We adopted a kitten from the Prince George's shelter last year at Christmas. It's a fantastic deal. If the program is the same as last year, you also receive a voucher at a local vet for a free follow-up visit so that they can see how they are healing from spay/neuter surgery. I think we ended up paying $75 for the cat, the exam, the surgery, the microchip and the vaccines. A few years prior it cost us almost $400 to have the "free" cat we found examed, vaccinated and spayed. I will always adopt from the pound from now on.

Has anyone else had a good experience with the adoption program?
