Adoptions are free this month at the Front Street Animal Shelter to reduce crowding.
The city animal shelter at 2127 Front St. has run out of space for new animals, according to a post on Facebook. As a “lifesaving measure,” all adoptions will be free until July 2.
The shelter’s website clarifies that fees will continue to apply at the shelter-affiliated Petco adoption center on Arden Way. Also, no release fees will be charged for owners reclaiming lost pets until July 2, although the offer does not apply to animals under investigation or ones that have been confiscated or quarantined.
The site dubs the event “Freedom on Front Street.”
The Front Street Animal Shelter is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays. It is closed to the public Mondays and Tuesdays.
