SPCA temporarily reduces dog adoption fee

The Allen County SPCA said today it has reduced the adoption fee for all adoptable dogs, including puppies, to $50, effective through Sunday.

"Our hope is to quickly find homes for all the dogs in our building so that we can help other shelters like ours that are brimming with wonderful animals," said Jessica Henry, the SPCA's director, in a statement.

All dogs have been or will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, the statement said.

Shelter hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Adopters are asked to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing.
