The Kansas Humane Society hopes to clear its shelter this weekend with an adoption clearance sale running Friday and Saturday.
Adult dogs, 6 months and older, are $25, and adult cats are, as always, free. Customers can buy one kitten for $25 and get another at no cost.
Summer is the season when the organization sees an influx of animals. Last month, the Humane Society took in almost 1,100 animals, and it has already taken in more than 400 this month, according to a news release.
“We’re on a mission to adopt out as many animals as we can, so this weekend we’re reducing adoption fees to find homes for as many loving dogs and cats as we can,” spokeswoman Melissa Houston said in a news release.
Euthanasia, a last resort, is administered after kennels reach capacity. This has only happened a handful of times this summer, Houston said.
For each adoption, two lives are saved: the adopted animal and the animal that can be placed in the now empty kennel.
Adoption fees include spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, a physical exam, a microchip, flea and tick treatment, a bag of pet food and 30 days of pet insurance.
The Humane Society is a nonprofit organization that receives no federal, state or local support and depends entirely on private donations.
