Lee County Domestic Animal Services began its annual “Home 4 the Holidays” campaign Thursday, discounting adoption fees for hundreds of pets.
“Don’t just do it to put a present under the tree. Think it out and make sure that pet’s going to be a family member,” Ria Brown said. “I think people have been thinking about this all year and plan to do it during the holidays, so we really want to capitalize on that.”
LCDAS has discounted pet adoptions each December since 2002.
Amy Leonard is a parent in search of adopting a dog.
“My poor girls have been begging for a dog for so long. It’d be a nice opportunity to be able to do that for them this Christmas,” Leonard said. “A dog is a great gift.”
Hundreds of pets have a special adoption fee of $30. The deal runs from Dec. 1 through Dec. 31.
Dec. 1 also marked the first day customers could fill out adoption applications online on the Animal Services’ website at www.LeeLostPets.com.
