Help a Shelter pet go home for the Holidays!

Published on December 20, 2020

Huntsville Animal Services has many dogs and cats longing to be “Home For the Holidays.”  To help Santa with these special deliveries, the Shelter is reducing adoption fees to $5 and $10 beginning Monday, December 21 through Thursday, December 31.

If you cannot adopt a dog, there is another great option to help pets housed in the Shelter. Please consider a “Holiday Foster Sleepover” with one of our loveable canines.  You’ll be giving these precious dogs a break from the Shelter and the opportunity to socialize with you and your family.  In turn, the home visit will provide Shelter staff valuable information about the dog’s behavior and preferences that will help complete the dog’s profile for a future adoption. The more the Shelter learns about a pet’s personality, the better the opportunity to find a good match with a forever home.

Visit the Shelter during operating hours before the holidays and take a chance with one of our fabulous Shelter pets by either adopting a dog or cat, or having a Foster Sleepover with one of the adult dogs.  Visit our website and search for adoptable pets under Adopt and Foster or to complete a foster application.

The adoption includes the rabies and other vaccinations, microchip for pet identification, city license tag, spay or neuter sterilization, and a free bag of pet food as long as supplies last.  There are some restrictions with the number of people entering the building, but staff is available to help you find the perfect pet for you and your family.

The Animal Shelter is located at 4950 Triana Boulevard and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Holiday hours vary. Check the website and Facebook for holidays.
