Fayetteville Animal Services waives dog adoption fees during Spring Break
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — To celebrate spring break and encourage adoptions, Fayetteville Animal Services is waiving all animal adoption fees for dogs from Friday, March 18, through Saturday, March 26.
The Animal Services shelter is currently housing more than 20 adorable, adoptable dogs and puppies with more becoming available soon. All pets adopted from Animal Services come already spayed or neutered, current on vaccines and microchipped. Dogs also are tested for heartworms.
“We have some dogs who have been waiting a long time for that perfect person to come through the doors, and we want to make adoption everyone’s first choice,” Animal Services Superintendent Justine Lentz said. “Our staff spends so much time with these dogs, getting to know them really well, and the highlight of their day is helping a potential adopter find just the right companion.”
The Animal Services shelter, located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave., is open for adoption 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturday.
The adoption process starts online, where adopters can fill out a simple application form. Once the application is approved, adopters are invited to come in at their convenience to find the perfect fit! To learn more and fill out the adoption application – and see photos of dogs available for adoption – go to: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/539/Animal-Adoption-Process.
All pets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and all adopters must complete the adoption application first to be approved.
