Time is running out to adopt a pet for the holidays.


As of Sunday, December 19th, 42 stockings were hung at the Haywood County Animal Services office representing dogs and cats that have been adopted since the Home for the Holidays promotion began on November 22.  Aidan’s Fund and Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation have teamed with Haywood County Animal Services to pay a portion of the adoption fee for pets adopted until January 2, 2010.  Fee includes spay/neuter for each pet before it goes to its forever home.  Cost for dogs is $60, $37.50 for female cats and $27.50 for male cats.


The Animal Services office will be closed on Friday, December 24; Saturday, December 25; Monday, December 27; Saturday, January 1 and Monday, January 3. Sunday hours are 12N-4:00pm and weekdays 9:00am-5:00pm.  Animal Services is located at  245 Hemlock Street in West Waynesville.
