Lee County offers free adoptions for all adult dogs until April 30

By Staff | Apr 12, 2010

Despite a special promotion offering discounts on all pet adoptions during the month of April, Lee County Domestic Animal Services still has too many adult dogs. So to find homes for as many dogs as possible, LCDAS will offer free adoptions for all dogs one year old or older through April 30. With a wide variety of dogs on hand, adopters will find everything from a Shih Tzu to a Shepherd when selecting the perfect family pet.
Anyone adopting a puppy (under one year of age), cat or kitten will receive a discount from $20 to $75 off the regular adoption fee for the remainder of the month.
“We want to eliminate any reason someone would have to acquire a pet anywhere but at a shelter,” said Donna Ward, LCDAS director, in a prepared statement.
With that goal in mind, all pets still will come with $500 worth of veterinary services which include spay or neuter surgery, age appropriate vaccinations, rabies and county license (for pets 3 months and older), heartworm test (for dogs 6 months and older), feline aids and leukemia test (for cats), flea treatment, worming, microchip ID, 10 day health guarantee, and a bag of Science Diet pet food.
For more information about pets for adoption, call 239-533-7387 (LEE-PETS) or visit www.LeeLostPets.com to view current photos of pets available. The Web site updates automatically every hour. Lee County Domestic Animal Services is located at 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, off Six Mile Cypress Pkwy., next to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.
