Throughout October, Naperville Area Humane Society (NAHS) will join the ASPCA in observance of national Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog month with their “Barktoberfest” promotion. To commemorate the occasion, NAHS will reduce the adoption fees on all adult dogs and puppies.
“It’s a sad fact that approximately 8 to 12 million companion animals end up in shelters each year; there simply aren’t enough homes,” said Angie Wood, executive director of the Naperville Area Humane Society. “Celebrating adopt-a-shelter-dog month is a great way to highlight the wonderful dogs awaiting a second chance at a forever home.”
The local humane society has dogs in all sizes, ages and activity levels. Whether individuals are looking for an exercise buddy or a lap dog, they’re sure to find the ideal fit for at a local shelter.
NAHS’ Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog promotion will run from October 1-31.
During that time, the adoption fee for adult dogs is $100 (normally $200). The fee for puppies is $150 (normally $250). All dogs are up to date on vaccinations and have been tested for heartworm disease. They are also spayed or neutered and microchipped.
