Murray, Utah —In order to encourage individuals to adopt as shelters meet or exceed capacity, the Humane Society of Utah is offering half off all adoption fees through the end of June.
Each pet for adoption through the Hume Society of Utah has been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and assessed medically and behaviorally.
This comes as adoptions slow down and more pets flood into shelters.
“Shelters across the state are at or over capacity.”, said HSU Associate Director of Marketing and Communications Guinnevere Shuster in a press release. “Adoptions are slowing down, and animals are waiting longer than usual to get adopted. By making adoption affordable for everyone we hope to move homeless pets into loving homes.”
In the coming weeks, officials hope that more pets find forever homes, which will free up shelter space for the increasing number of homeless pets.
