Anyone wanting a furry buddy to help guard the grill this July Fourth weekend or to curl up with after a long day at the pool, consider adopting or fostering an animal from Huntsville Animal Services (HAS).

As the Independence Day holiday approaches, there are more than 100 animals in need of freedom from the confines of the shelter’s kennels. To that end, HAS is issuing an urgent plea for both adopters and fosters.

To help find homes for adoptable dogs and cats, HAS is offering adoption fees as low as $10 for adult pets. The adoption package includes vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchip, a City license and a free bag of dog food. If you’re unable to adopt a pet, consider fostering an animal through the Shelter’s foster program.

HAS is located at 4950 Triana Boulevard in Huntsville. Hours are Wednesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. HAS will be closed Monday, July 5, for the July Fourth holiday.
