Weekend ‘Adopt-a-Thon’ includes reduced fees for potential pets
The animal rescue business is going a little too well at the moment, according to officials at the Chester County SPCA. A surplus of adoption-ready pets has prompted the nonprofit to run a weekend special in an effort to reduce its population.
“The love of an animal is priceless. And now the Chester County SPCA makes it more affordable to adopt a friend for life with a special reduced fee of only $20 for any animal, which includes: spaying/neutering, first vaccinations, micro-chipping, free exam, and more,” said Rich Britton, a Chester County SPCA spokesman. “The summer is a great time for adoption.”
Britton said the Chester County SPCA, which depends on donations for its mission of taking in unwanted animals and investigating abuse complaints, is an open access shelter, which means that no animals are turned away. And right now, the agency would like to turn over some of those pets to good homes, he said.
Adoption hours are noon to 6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday at the Chester County SPCA, located at 1212 Phoenixville Pike in West Goshen Township. For more information, visit http://www.ccspca.org.
