Adopt a pet before a storm
With a full shelter and hurricane season around the corner, the Florida Keys Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is holding an Adopt-a-thon at the College Road shelter next week.
From May 29 through June 2, only Monroe County's $15 fee will be charged.
The SPCA will waive adoption fees, which usually costs $50 to $100 for dogs and puppies and $15 to $40 for cats and kittens.
All animals will have been spayed or neutered, microchipped and brought up to date with their shots. The usual adoption procedures will apply.
For more information or to volunteer as a hurricane foster parent, call 305-294-4857.
