Humane League cuts cost of dogs – Lancaster, PA News

The best friends that money can buy just got a little cheaper.  But only for a couple of days.

“Our kennels are overflowing,” Becki Meiss, director of marketing for the Humane League of Lancaster County, said Thursday.  “It seems to be a trend. About the same time last year, the first week of June, we were in the same position.  “We’re getting more dogs than we usually see in the winter.”

Although it’s early June and still technically spring, the League is holding a Dog Days of Summer adoption sale.  Dog adoption fees will be cut in half through Sunday, Meiss said.  There are 91 dogs on the premises, she said, but only 75 cages. For the time being, she said, some dogs are doubling up in cages and others are in foster care outside the shelter.

The League received 236 dogs in April and 271 in May, she said.
