The Marin Humane Society has reduced the adoption fee for small dogs under 20 pounds to $75 (from $150) with a Small Dogs, BIG Hearts promotion that runs through July 15. The society reports that it's current small dog population is more than 80%, and hopes that a temporary fee reduction will entice more families to adopt a new family member.
"From charming Chihuahuas to perky Pomeranians, we would love to see these little ones get into homes where they can relax and start to enjoy life on long walks and comfortable laps," said Tricia Breen, director of Animal Care and Adoptions. "By reducing the dog adoption fee, we hope to increase adoptions and free up room in our shelter for other animals in need."
The Marin Humane Society Adoption Center (171 Bel Marin Keys Blvd., Novato) is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday. For more information, call 415.506.6225 or go to MarinHumaneSociety.org.
