Animals in the House: Adopt now, so a dog or cat can be ‘home for the holidays’ – Oroville Mercury Register

Each year, from the beginning of October to the end of December, the Northwest SPCA and many shelters across the country participate in a program called “Iams Home 4 the Holidays.”

Sponsored by Iams Pet Food, the program’s goal is to help provide incentives for people to adopt shelter animals now

Shelters, including the NW SPCA, lower their adoption rates, and send each adopted animal home with a packet of information and coupons for reduced price pet food from Iams.

At the NW SPCA, from now until the end of December, our dog adoption cost is just $50. Each dog is spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested for heartworm disease, treated for fleas and ticks, and implanted with an identification microchip.
