Lee County shelter offers summer specials on cats and dogs
It’s raining cats and dogs this July at Lee County Domestic Animal Services and the showers are bringing deep discounts on pet adoptions at the shelter. This is the perfect time to add a new pet with great deals on both cats and dogs, including a two-for-one deal on all cats and kittens.
All cats and kittens: $10
Medium and large dogs: $35
Puppies and small dogs: $50
The summer months are when all shelters see a rise in the number of cats and kittens entering their facilities. During the 2015 kitten season, Animal Services’ intake of cats increased by 75 percent from a monthly average of 306 to 532. The intake of dogs is consistently high throughout the year with an average of 442 dogs entering the shelter monthly.
All adoptions include spay or neuter surgery, age-appropriate vaccinations, flea treatment, de-worming, heartworm test for dogs six months and older, feline aids and leukemia test for cats, Lee County pet license for pets three months and older, microchip ID, 10-day health guarantee and Pet Behavior Helpline.
Pets available for adoption may be viewed online and adopters can submit an application online as well. The website updates hourly. Volunteers and staff will be available to help individuals and families select the pet that best suits their lifestyle.
Adoption hours are 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday at the shelter, 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, next to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office off Six Mile Cypress Parkway.
