‘Dog Days of Summer’ adoption event July 29 - Aug. 6
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — To encourage dog adoptions, Fayetteville Animal Services is waiving all dog adoption fees from Friday, July 29, through Saturday, Aug. 6.
The shelter is currently housing more than 20 adorable, adoptable dogs and puppies with more coming available soon. The shelter has 22 kennels for adoptable dogs, so things are getting quite full.
“We have some dogs who have been waiting a long time for that perfect person to come through the doors, and we want to make adoption everyone’s first choice,” Animal Services Superintendent Justine Lentz said. “Our staff spends so much time with these dogs, getting to know them really well. The highlight of their day is when they help a potential adopter find the right companion.”
All pets adopted from Animal Services come already spayed or neutered, current on vaccines and microchipped. Dogs also are tested for heartworms.
The adoption process starts online, where adopters can fill out a simple application form. Once the application is approved, adopters are invited to come in at their convenience to find the perfect fit! To learn more and fill out the adoption application – and see photos of dogs available for adoption – go to: https://www.fayetteville-ar.gov/539/Animal-Adoption-Process.
Animal Services is open 10 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. Saturdays. The shelter is located at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave.
All pets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and all adopters must complete the adoption application first to be approved.
