FALLSTON, Md. (WJZ) — Any of the dogs at the Harford County Humane Society Monday could be yours for a steep discount. If dogs aren’t your thing, maybe a cat will do the job. Perhaps a rabbit or a bird!
HCHS is experiencing an overflow of these animals during a time when they’re trying to get people to adopt instead of shop.READ MORE: Three Killed, Including Safe Streets Worker, In East Baltimore Quadruple Shooting
Marketing Coordinator Erin Long said she can’t find a particular reason they’re at capacity.
“We can’t really figure out or pinpoint one thing that it’s due to, but we’ve definitely seen more animals being surrendered,” she said.READ MORE: Closures & Delays: Maryland Schools, Government Offices & Businesses
Long says the Humane Society is desperate for adopters to come out and fall in love with these animals, but they’re running a new promotion to speed up the process. This month, every animal in the shelter is $12, which covers vaccinations, microchips, spay/neuter and more.
Last month when WJZ visited these 4 legged friends, the shelter had already lowered its adoption fee to $25. Weeks later, the shelter has more than halved the price to send their pets to a loving home.
“We have animals that are going to be very playful and very interactive with you,” Long said, petting a cat. “Then we have animals that are just as comfortable just curling up on the couch with you.”MORE NEWS: Maryland Weather: Rain, Snow To Complicate Thursday Commute
At the end of 2020, 90% of the more than 2,100 homeless animals that came through the shelter found placement. All they need now is you. Anyone interested in adopting can visit the shelter’s website.
