On Monday, Jan. 17, Northshore Humane Society will kick off a week-long fee-waived adoption event in memory of Betty White and her love for animals.
Fees for the first 100 animals adopted during Betty White's birthday week will be sponsored by an anonymous donor in memory of rescue dog, Jeaux Hayes, who was taken unexpectedly from his family at the young age of 6.
The event will take place Monday, Jan. 17, through Friday, Jan. 21, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday, Jan. 22, 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Northshore Humane Society recommends visits to their adoption pages at northshorehumane.org or to the shelter to tour the animals available on-site. Shelter staff and volunteers are ready to find families their perfect pets, a spokesperson said. The no-kill shelter's website also gives families a preview of every animal under their care and a link to apply directly online.
NHS Director of Operations, Alexandra Coogan, urged people not to wait to take advantage of this offer. "Fees will be waived for the first 100 animals adopted, whether they are a puppy, an adult dog, kitten or cat. Our goal is to get as many animals out of the shelter and into loving, forever homes," she said.
All pets are up-to-date on vaccinations, spay/neutered and microchipped. Adopters may be required to purchase parish tags and/or prevention.
Northshore Humane Society is located at 20384 Harrison Ave., Covington. More information on this event can be found at northshorehumane.org or the shelter's Facebook page.
