County’s pet shelter waives adoption fees for cats and kittens


Palm Beach County Animal Care & Control is making it easier to find homes for the pets in its care.

The shelter is waiving the adoption fee for all cats and kittens, and also is offering a ‘name your price’ adoption promotion for all dogs in its adoption program.

Both promotions run through Sept. 24.

All pets adopted from from the shelter are spayed or neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, have a current county license tag, and are sent home with a free bag of Science Diet pet food.

Pet owners also receive a health care certificate worth $500 in savings for their new pet.

The shelter is at 7100 Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach.

Adoption hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
