Hawaiian Humane Society to lower adoption rates
If you're in the market for a new fur-ever family member now's the purr-fect time to adopt.
Starting Tuesday the Hawaiian Humane Society is lowering adoption rates for some of its animals.
The Humane Society has a lot of older cats and dogs that need to find homes so starting Tuesday there will be a new tiered adoption system to help those older animals find homes.
Here are the new rates for dogs six years and older are $55 to adopt. Dogs that are seven months to 5-years-old are $85 and puppies are $125.
If you find a cat you love that's six years and older the adoption fee is waived. Cats that are 2-years-old to 5-years-old are just $10 to adopt and cats seven months to 1-year-old are $45. Kittens are more expensive and go for $125.
Again the idea is to bring attention to the Society's senior animal residents.
"Senior dogs and cats are amazing animals and they have a lot of love to offer. They make wonderful companions and they bond really well with new families and we just want to give them a little more attention and highlight them more and encourage people to adopt them," Hawaiian Humane Society Daniele Rosell said.
All dogs and cats are spayed and neutered, micro-chipped and vaccinated.
The Hawaiian Humane Society is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Monday the Humane Society is closed for training and behavior evaluations.
