For immediate release
The Columbia-Greene Humane Society/SPCA announced that beginning on Monday, August 13, all dog adoption fees will be waived for the remainder of August and through September.
Since 2007, CGHS/SPCA has offered “Furrever Free” cats and kittens to approved homes. As of late, however, the shelter has recently been overcome by dozens of stray dogs from Columbia and Greene Counties. Unfortunately, the owners are not redeeming the dogs, and they are now abandoned at the shelter, awaiting new, caring homes.
In hopes of boosting adoptions for the remainder of summer, CGHS/SPCA will be waiving all dog adoption fees for approved homes. All adopted dogs will be spayed or neutered, health-tested, vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped, and will be provided with a collar and leash, a flea/tick preventative, and a veterinary follow-up exam at the CGHS/SPCA clinic free of charge .
