Animal Shelter Lures Petowners with Special
COLUMBIA, S.C. (WOLO) — As summer slowly winds down, pet adoptions also slow down. Yet, according to officials at Columbia’s Animal Shelter, there are plenty of animals available, especially adult pets, one year or older. In an effort to attract more people, the shelter is offering a special deal during the month of August. All adult pets will be half off the regular adoption price: $34 for adult cats; $37 for adult dogs. Shelter officials say they have to put to sleep some 10,000 unclaimed animals every year. Increasing the number of adoptions during a traditionally slow time, they feel, will help decrease those numbers. For more information on specifics and what type of animals are available, contact the Columbia Animal Shelter at 803-776-PETS (7387) or visit columbiasc.net/animalservices or petfinder.com. Columbia Animal Services is located at 127 Humane Lane, off Shop Road and I-77.
