July Pet Adoption Special & Clear the Shelters Day
“Let Freedom Sing (howl, bark, meow or purr!)”
July 16th – Friday, July 22nd
July is when we celebrate our freedom and independence. At Burlington Animal Services, our dogs and cats will sing, howl, bark, meow or purr for a freedom ride into your heart and home! Saturday, July 16th through Friday, July 22nd, all dogs will be available for only $25.
All cats are available for $15 now through September 21st. The special adoption fees include spay/neuter, basic shots, a 1 year rabies vaccination, heartworm or Felv/FIV testing and 30 days free Trupanion Pet Insurance
Burlington Animal Services will also be participating in the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations’ Clear the Shelters second annual nationwide pet adoption drive. Burlington Animal Services will offer fee-waived adoptions on Saturday, July 23, as part of the nationwide Clear the Shelters initiative that seeks to find new homes for homeless pets.This year’s Clear the Shelters event comes after 2015’s highly successful inaugural effort, which resulted in nearly 20,000 pets in shelters across the country finding new homes. The nationwide day of action literally emptied dozens of animal shelters across the country and inspired local communities to take action and open their homes to animals in need.
Regular adoption fees are $90 for dogs and will resume on Monday, July 25th. Regular adoption fees for cats are $50 and will resume Thursday, September 22nd. Call 336-578-0343 with questions or for additional information. Learn more about Burlington Animal Services and view available adoptable animals at www.BurlingtonNC.gov/pets.

As the prevalence of online marketplaces such as Craigslist and Facebook continue to increase, residents are often in search of a neutral location to make their exchange of goods and/or payment.
