- Shelter marks Independence Day with adoption specials through July 15
Pinellas County Animal Services celebrates Independence Day with a Freedom for Paws adoption event from Monday, June 30, through Wednesday, July 2. During this celebration, the shelter will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. to give citizens more time to discover their perfect pet.
During this time and through Tuesday, July 15, the adoption fee will be $5 for all cats including kittens, $7 for large breed dogs, $14 for small breed dogs and $21 for puppies. The fee includes medical checkup, spaying/neutering, vaccinations, internal and external parasite control and micro chipping. The required Pinellas County license is also provided.
Since creating partnerships for cat adoption programs with several local pet stores, we now adopt out more cats than dogs. All donations received from the cat adoptions are placed in the Animal Welfare Trust Fund.
