ADOPT A PET FROM THE GREAT FALLS ANIMAL SHELTER
GREAT FALLS, Montana – Do something good for the earth next week at the Great Falls Animal Shelter. The Shelter will be running an adoption promotion Monday, April 22 – Friday, April 26, in recognition of Earth Day and Arbor Day. Those who adopt a dog or cat will receive a tree seedling to redeem this spring from Tilleraas Landscape & Nursery as well as a goody bag valued at over $100.
Adoption costs are $70 for altered cats and $80 for altered dogs. For animals that are unaltered the cost to adopt is $40, plus the cost to spay/neuter your new pet. Per Montana Code, all animals leaving a Montana shelter must be spayed or neutered. Dogs and cats needing to be altered will be transported to a veterinarian of the new owner’s choice.
