Nov 06, 2022 12:30 am

Bill Williams reports for Columbia-Greene Media that the Columbia-Greene Humane Society is waiving adoption fees for all pets again during the month of November, Ron Perez, the organization's president and CEO said November 1. The Empty the Shelter for the Holidays campaign will continue through November 30. One anonymous shelter supporter has agreed to sponsor the fees for all pets adopted to their new homes, Perez said. The Humane Society currently lists 27 dogs, 68 cats, and one hamster available for adoption. “There is currently a great selection of dogs and cats that we’d like to find homes for,” Perez said. The sponsorships cover the adoption fees for cats, dogs and guinea pigs. In addition, all adopted pets are spayed or neutered, have been examined by a veterinarian and had all their shots and flea protection. Cats will go home with a cat carrier and dogs with a leash, Perez said. This is the second consecutive year that the Columbia-Greene Humane Society has held the Empty the Shelter campaign. “We were able to hold it in 2020 and it was a success, so we’re doing it again,” Perez said. Anyone interested in adopting is urged to visit the shelter’s website at cghs [dot] org or to call 518-828-6044, ext. 106, to learn more. Read the full story at HudsonValley360 [dot] com.
