Lee Co. Humane Society to hold adoption event

Press Release

LEE COUNTY, AL - The Lee County Humane Society will host the first Puppy Palooza of the year on Saturday, April 17 at 1:00 p.m. Puppy Palooza is an adoption event to spotlight the influx of litters of puppies the shelter sees in warm weather months.

Throughout the spring and summer months, LCHS will alternate Puppy Palooza adoption events and Wash-n-Wags on each Saturday.

Any puppy adopted at Puppy Palooza will have a discounted adoption processing fee of $60. LCHS will have two adoption counselors on-site to guide adopters through the adoption process and counseling session for same-day adoptions.

In order to adopt, you will need a copy of vet records for your current pet(s), a copy of your lease stating that pets are allowed (if you rent your home,) and a valid driver's license or photo id.

Any puppy adopter that arranges to have a pediatric spay or neuter surgery for their new puppy will have a discounted adoption processing fee of $40. Lee County Humane Society will provide adopters with a list of local vets who perform pediatric spay or neuter surgeries.

More than 6,000 animals visit the shelter each year. In warm weather months, the shelter may see up to 200 animals per week.

LCHS encourages pet owners to do their part to eliminate the pet overpopulation problem in our community by having their pets spayed or neutered.
