Huntsville Animal Services offering retro prices for available pets

Published on April 21, 2021

Huntsville Animal Services (HAS) is turning back the clock to the 1970s to help find “groovy” new homes for homeless cats and dogs.

Fifty years ago, residents might have referred to the shelter as “the pound,” but today’s HAS is more advanced. What hasn’t changed, however, is it’s still easy and inexpensive to take home a furry companion.

Adopters can take advantage of retro pricing starting at $10 and adopt a pet more loving and entertaining than a pet rock. The adoption package includes vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, microchip, a City license and a free bag of dog food. Some exemptions apply.

If you’re unable to adopt a pet, consider fostering an animal through the Shelter’s foster program to help reduce kennel populations.

HAS is located at 4950 Triana Boulevard in Huntsville. The shelter is open Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
