SALT LAKE CITY — Those looking for a new best friend are in luck because a Sugar House animal shelter is waiving all pet adoption fees in May.
With May being National Pet Month, Best Friends Rescue Center and Bounty Paper Towels are teaming up to waive fees from Saturday through May 31.
All pets adopted from the Sugar House location are fixed, vaccinated, microchipped and ready to go home immediately.
According to the center, due to understaffing and limited shelter hours, there are 100,000 more pets than at the same time last year who are currently at risk of being killed in shelters. Across the country.
“The sad truth is that shelters get overcrowded when animals aren’t adopted quickly enough and that can be life-threatening,” said Julie Castle, CEO of Best Friends. “That’s why we are grateful to Bounty for coming to the rescue quickly and recouping the adoption fee this month. This will help Best Friends bring more animals into homes at this critical time. .”
