The Rescue Games: Huntsville Animal Services issues adoption plea

Published on July 21, 2021

As the summer Olympics kick off in Tokyo, Huntsville Animal Services (HAS) is asking the public to accomplish a different kind of Olympic feat by adopting or fostering a furry friend.

The Shelter continues to see higher-than-usual dog surrenders at its facility on 4950 Triana Boulevard in Huntsville. That’s why HAS has extended its lowered adoption rates through the end of July ­– $10 for adult dogs and cats, though some exclusions may apply. Kitten adoption fees range from $35-$50.

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.

The Shelter is open Monday 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.
