The New Nodaway Humane Society will offer a reduced adoption fee for dogs during October to honor Adopt-A-Dog Month.
Canine adoption fees will be only $70, a $10 savings off the regular fee. This fee includes the cost of spaying or neutering, worming, Rabies vaccination, a microchip implant in case a dog is lost and training information.
Adopt-A-Dog Month is a nationwide initiative that strives to find homes for millions of dogs that are unwanted or abused. It comes at a critical time for the local shelter in Maryville because it has been too full for too long.
