Yolo County Animal Services is celebrating National Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month during October with a “Wooftoberfest” event, which will offer substantially reduced adoption fees for all dogs currently at the shelter.
Whether you want an exercise buddy, a lap dog, a partner in agility competitions, a constant companion for an aging parent or simply a fuzzy face to greet you after a hard day of work, an adopted dog can be all of these, and more. Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month is the perfect time for people to adopt an animal and experience the joy of finding their own answers.
Yolo County Animal Services has dogs of every type, size, age and personality waiting for loving homes. Dogs will be adoptable for $75 (a 50 percent savings) with pit bull breeds, pit bull breed mixes and mature dogs available for only $25. A $15 licensing fee is added.
All adoptable fees include spay/neuter surgery, microchipping, vaccinations, deworming and testing for heartworm disease.
The mission of Yolo County Animal Services is to promote high-volume adoptions of homeless pets, to provide low-cost spay and neuter programs to help stop pet overpopulation and to educate the community on pet retention services to drastically reduce the flow of lost and surrendered animals to shelters.
The shelter is at 2640 E. Gibson Road in Woodland. Hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 to 4 p.m. Saturdays.
