Black, Or­ange And Furry Ready For Homes

McDonald County Press - - COUNTY -

Lots of amaz­ing dogs and cats will be avail­able for adop­tion at dis­counted rates dur­ing Jo­plin Hu­mane So­ci­ety’s “Black and Or­ange Furry Sale.” Shel­ter work­ers say that 110 cats and kit­tens and 105 dogs and pup­pies are wait­ing for homes, and more great pets be­come avail­able ev­ery day. The shel­ter will of­fer “door buster prizes” with the first 10 adop­tions get­ting a free cus­tom­ized ID tag for their newly adopted pet.

“All pets with any amount of black or or­ange fur will be of­fered at $20; there is no short­age of beau­ti­ful dogs and cats hop­ing to be placed in their fur-ever home be­fore the hol­i­day sea­son be­gins,” said Con­nie An­drews, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor. “We have taken in more than 345 an­i­mals so far in Septem­ber, our shel­ter is full and we want to see these home­less dogs and cats get cho­sen for their spe­cial homes.”

“All dogs and cats will be neutered, made cur­rent on all vac­cines in­clud­ing ra­bies, treated for par­a­sites and mi­cro-chipped,” said Tianna Fisher, shel­ter ser­vices man­ager. “This is a chance to get a great adop­tion deal and an even greater new fam­ily mem­ber.”

The Black and Or­ange Furry Sale kicked off when the shel­ter opened Mon­day, Oct. 1, and runs through clos­ing on Sun­day, Oct. 7.

Shel­ter work­ers re­mind every­one that adopt­ing a pet is a com­mit­ment and en­cour­age po­ten­tial adopters to give adop­tion very se­ri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion.

“Get­ting a pet is like mak­ing a prom­ise of for­ever,” said Con­nie An­drews. “We don’t want any­one to jump into this de­ci­sion lightly and re­gret it. Many of our pets are at our shel­ter be­cause some­one didn’t think about that de­ci­sion be­fore­hand.”

All adop­tions re­quire ap­proved ap­pli­ca­tions, which in­cludes ver­bal or writ­ten land­lord ap­proval.

The Jo­plin Hu­mane So­ci­ety is open from 1 to 5 p.m. Mon­day through Thurs­day, 1 to 6 p.m. Fri­day, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Satur­day, and 1 to 4 p.m. Sun­day.
