Animal control offering dog adoptions for $25
JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Thanks to a partnership, people can adopt a pet from Jonesboro Animal Control for cheap.
Mayor Harold Copenhaver announced that the city has partnered with the Bissell Pet Foundation to offer adoptions for only $25 this week only.
That $25 covers the adoption of a puppy or an older dog, vaccinations, spaying or neutering, and microchipping.
The typical cost of adopting a dog from JAC is $135 and even more at retail pet stores.
“Tell your friends, spread the word, and help us empty our shelter and give a dog or puppy a loving home,” Animal Control Director Larry Rogers said.
Rogers thanked Cathy Bissell for agreeing to reimburse the city $100 for each adoption.
Anyone wanting to adopt can see the adoptable dogs on the Jonesboro Animal Control Facebook page.
