SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif.– Woods Humane Society is reducing adoption fees to $14 beginning Feb. 1 until Feb. 14 in honor of the season of love.
Usual adoption fees can range from $65 to $150 for adult dogs and cats and the decreased fee removes a barrier for potential owners.
Woods Humane Society CEO Neil Trent says Valentine's Day is the perfect time to inspire anyone in need of companionship to think of adopting.
“At a time when our kennels and those of our shelter partners are absolutely brimming with adoptable animals eager to give their hearts to a family, Valentine’s Day seems like a great reason to remind our community of the incredible love and companionship they can find by adopting a shelter pet."
The non-profit ran a "Love is in the Air" social media campaign asking for submissions of photos capturing the love between owners and their furry friends to create artwork for the adoption special.
