The Town of Oyster Bay’s Animal Shelter is holding its fifth annual “Free Adoption Month” in September.
“I invite anyone interested in adopting a pet to visit the Town’s Animal Shelter and see the wide selection of puppies and kittens, as well as older dogs and cats, even some purebreds, available for adoption,” Coschignano said. “Trained shelter personnel will work with you to make sure the animal you select is appropriate for your family’s lifestyle.”
The Town will waive the usual adoption fee of $80 for dogs and $84 for cats. The standard $10 spay /neuter license fee still applies. For seniors, the license fee is $5.
Dogs will receive both a rabies and a 5-in-1 shot, while cats will receive a rabies and 3-in-1 shot at no charge. Both dogs and cats will receive free microchipping.
Contact the Animal Shelter at 677-5784. It is open Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. To see photos of animals available for adoption visit the Town’s website, www.oysterbaytown.com.
