WCAS is offering reduced dog adoption fees this weekend
I don’t know about you, but cuddling my puppies amidst a pile of cozy blankets on the couch is one of my favorite things to do on a cold winter day. If you started 2022 thinking your home and life could use a lot more puppy love, listen to this… Winnebago County Animal Services in Rockford is hosting a major dog adoption event this weekend!
The New Year, New WCAS Best Friend Dog Adoption Event
I can tell you firsthand that adopting a pet from an animal shelter is one of the most rewarding things I have ever experienced. Just knowing you’ve given an awesome animal another chance at happiness makes you smile, and that’s exactly what Winnebago County Animal Services hopes to accomplish this weekend.
This Friday and Saturday (January 21 & 22, 2022), adoption fees for dogs waiting for a permanent home at the shelter since 2021 will be reduced to $22. Here are the details from the WCAS press release;
“Start the new year with your new best friend! WCAS is asking you to make a resolution to adopt a dog in need in 2022!
All adoption fees will be just $22.00 for WCAS dogs this Friday and Saturday who have been looking for their forever homes since before New Years. HOUSE”.
The reduced adoption fees will not only make you an awesome best furry friend, it will still include the same services included with all adoptions at WCAS; a wellness exam, neutering or neutering, microchipping, vaccinations including a one-year rabies shot, flea and tick prevention, and more. All interested adopters can anticipate the adoption process now by filling out an application at winnebagoanimals.org. (You can also see all the adorable dogs waiting for homes at WCAS there too.)

To prepare for a potential incident, always keep your vet’s phone number handy, as well as an after-hours clinic you can call in case of an emergency. The ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center also has a helpline that you can call at (888) 426-4435 for advice.
