Dog adoption fees in October are half-price for all dogs that are at least 1 year old, Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control announced Wednesday.
October is National Adopt-a-Dog Month.
The shelter adoption hours at 3020 Hillegas Road are noon to 5 p.m. most weekdays; noon to 7 p.m. Wednesdays; and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. the first and third Saturdays of the month.
The normal dog adoption fee of $85 will be reduced to $42.50, thanks to a special national grant, the announcement said.
The fee includes spay or neuter surgery, microchipping and the first combination vaccine. The shelter said local veterinary clinics are donating the first wellness check-up.
