As part of the ASPCA $100K Challenge, the Burlington Pet Adoption Center will be cutting the price of pet adoptions in half this week with its Go Green. Recycle. Adopt a Pet promotion.
According to a news release, adoption fees are $30 for cats and $40 for dogs from August 22 to August 27. The reduced price includes the cost of spay/neuter surgery, a preliminary round of shots and a one-year rabies vaccination.
This week’s promotion will be followed by others throughout August, September and October in order to help the Adoption Center save the lives of 300 more pets than it did last year during the same time period. If accomplished, the Adoption Center could win a grand prize of a $100,000 grant from the ASPCA, or other smaller grants.
