Are you ready for a new pet? Heartland Humane Society in Yankton has announced some impressive August specials including "9 Lives for $9" and "Duo Deals."
"We have been very busy at the shelter and are completely full at the moment," HHS director Kerry Schmidt said. "We have some animals that have been with us for several months now and we want to help promote them and encourage area residents to consider adoption as the option for their next pet. In addition, every time a pet is adopted we are able to help another animal desperately waiting for attention."
HHS has selected 9 cats at the shelter to be part of a national "9 Lives for $9" campaign. The selected cats can be adopted for $9 now through Aug. 20. To view the felines, stop by shelter or go online at www.heartlandhumanesociety.net
"These 9 cats selected are a variety of sizes, ages, and personalities. Each one would make a very nice pet for the right person," Schmidt said. "If you are thinking about adding a feline to your household, I hope you consider contacting us and learning about these 9 felines and all our other cats at the shelter."
All adoption prices include spay/neuter of the animal if old enough, proper vaccines and medical treatment, and rabies shots.
HHS also has a "Duo Deals" promotion the month of August. Right now, you can adopt any two black cats, two orange cats, or two litter mates (feline or canine) for $75. The shelter also has two older Beagles that are part of the promotion.
"Many times our older animals have a harder time getting adopted," Schmidt said. "I think the general public forgets that older pets are usually laid back and already housetrained. In addition, animals that receive proper vet care can live 15-20 years so an 8-year-old dog or cat has plenty of love left to give."
