Bedford is giving folks a break on adoption fees, hoping people who have thought about adding pets to their families will make the move.
Throughout December, the usual $60 fee is reduced to $35. Adopters also receive vouchers for $25 toward spay/neuter service and $10 for rabies vaccinations.
“Pet adoptions this month have started out strong, but we still need community support,” said Deputy Chief L. Hawkins.
Bedford Animal Shelter’s adoptable pets are listed on petfinder.com, and there’s an online kennel at bedfordtx.gov. Walk-ins are welcome at the 1809 Reliance Parkway shelter from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. Call 817-952-2191. — Terry Evans
