St. Joseph Animal Control will offer an opportunity to add a new pet to your family for free.

Dogs and cats at the shelter who have reached the age of 7 or older are available to adopt at no charge through Oct. 15.

Additionally, animals who aren't yet 7-years-old will be available for a reduced rate of $20.17.

The St. Joseph Animal Shelter continues to be over-populated with dogs and cats. Staff said pet adoption is almost always more affordable than purchasing a puppy or kitten from a breeder or litter. Adoption fees include city tags, spay/neuter procedures, microchipping, vaccines and a veterinary exam.

Some animals available for adoption can be found at Petsmart or Petco, however a majority of dogs and cats are at the shelter located at 701 Lower Lake Road.

Shelter Hours:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Thursday: 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday: 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
  • Friday & Saturday: 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

You can view photos of available pets on the Friends of the Animal Shelter Facebook page.

After this weekend's rainfall, a refreshing change is forecast to begin the new week with below average temperatures and plenty of sunshine.
