JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Humane Society is offering $25 adoption fees until December 24th in an effort to find homes for all the foster animals in Duval County's shelter. The Humane Society is dubbing the effort a "silent night" and hopes to have the shelter completely animal free for Christmas.
Denise Deisler, JHS executive director, tells Action News that "if you aren’t in a position to adopt a pet this holiday, you can foster a dog or cat on Dec. 24th and 25th."
Foster families then can return the pet on Dec. 26th. If a family elects to keep a pet, they can adopt the animal on Dec. 27th.
All pets available for the reduced adoption fee are spayed or neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations and microchipped.
