Last year we made the bold move to pay for the spaying and neutering of every adopted animal. That added up to a considerable amount of money, so we did raise our adoption fees. However, we provided some free adoptions to Senior Citizens through Purina, and we discounted adoption fees by 50% for animals that have been at the shelter for more than 30 days.
So as of February 5, 2012 we had 147 adoptions. Last year during the same time period we had 87 adoptions! Wow, we more than doubled the adoptions. I hope the trend continues.
