Las Vegas – With its shelter facilities near capacity, The Animal Foundation is waiving adoption fees on all rabbits as well as all dogs and cats six months and older currently looking for their forever homes. Those interested in bringing home a new furry friend are encouraged to stop by The Animal Foundation’s Lied Animal Shelter beginning this Saturday, July 1, from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. to meet the playful animals.
The Fourth of July holiday period is one of the busiest times of the year for The Animal Foundation as many dogs become lost or stray as they seek safety from loud fireworks. That’s why the shelter has joined forces with sponsors Petco Foundation and Paws for the Cause to waive fees to make adoption even more affordable for prospective pet parents.
As the largest volume single-site animal shelter and pet adoption center in the nation, The Animal Foundation provides refuge for homeless animals throughout the Las Vegas Valley. This latest promotion is just one of the many life-saving and life-changing efforts implemented as part of Mission: Possible 2020, the initiative to save all healthy and treatable animals in our care by 2020.
