In an effort to try and move more dogs and cats into loving homes, the Dallas City Council Wednesday approved a reduction in adoption fees at the animal shelter for certain people and events.
After the shelter euthanized 26,000 animals last year, the hope is that a financial incentive will get more pets placed.
But some animal advocates say the fee incentive doesn’t go far enough.
In retail, stores drop prices to increase demand. So the City of Dallas is trying the adoption fee incentive that animal shelters in other cities have used successfully.
