Summit County Animal Shelter offering half-price adoptions through Sept. 15

The Summit County Animal Shelter is cutting adoption fees in half ahead of a September renovation, hoping to get as many cats, dogs and kittens into new homes before they have to be temporarily moved out.

With the half-off discount, adoption fees will be $55 for dogs, $50 for kittens and $20 for cats until the shelter closes for renovation on Sept. 15. No puppies are currently up for adoption, but if any become available they will cost $60 to take home with the discount.

As of Monday, six dogs and 16 cats and kittens were available. Those that aren't adopted by Sept. 15 will be moved to temporary accommodations while the carpeting in the shelter's office is replaced with epoxy.

"Carpet and animals aren't always the best combination," Summit County Animal Control director Lesley Hall said. "During the renovation, we can't have any animals or people in there. Animal control will still be on duty but won't be providing any shelter services" until the renovation is complete on Sept. 25.

Adopting a pet requires a completed adoption application, property owner agreement and a dog introduction if the adopter already has one or more dog. For more information, call 970-668-3230 or click here.
