Lee County Domestic Animal Services (LCDAS) kicks off a month long adoption promotion beginning September 1st. The Back to School Pet Adoption Special, offers adopters a $25 discount off the regular adoption fee when they donate 10 lbs. of unopened cat food to help re-stock the agency’s Community Pet Pantry.
LCDAS hopes the promotion will solve two problems the shelter is currently experiencing, a critically low supply of cat food and a lack of good homes for adoptable pets. The Pantry currently feeds more than 1,000 dogs and cats every month whose owners are receiving public assistance and cannot afford pet food and supplies. Cat food is typically not donated as often as dog food so supplies deplete more quickly.
