The Kansas Humane Society will be open July 4 for the first time and will offer adoption specials for $17.76 as part of its Pet Independence Day.
Hours on the Fourth will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the shelter, located at K-96 and Hillside.
Kittens 9 months and under, and dogs 6 months and older will be $17.76 during the special. Adult cats are always free, although donations are accepted to defer costs. Adoption fees include spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, a physical exam, microchipping, and flea and tick treatment.
The society has more than 100 animals available for adoption, spokeswoman Melissa Houston said in a news release.
Our Kittenpalooza adoption event was such a huge success, she said, alluding to a recent adoption event. We found homes for 107 animals that day and hope to have the same success on Pet Independence Day.
Animals available for adoption are featured online at www.kshumane.org.
Regular adoption hours are 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday and 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
