DUBUQUE, Iowa (KWWL) -- The Dubuque Regional Humane Society is holding a clear the shelter promotion this week. Kittens, cats, and dogs over the age of seven months are all adoptable for twenty five dollars.
Additionally some animals that have been with shelter for a long period of time have had their fees waived entirely. Puppies are still the standard price.
The promotion is sponsored by the Bissell Pet Foundation to continue their goal of increasing the amount of shelter animals that find homes. Many of the cats and dogs at the Dubuque Humane Society are strays that likely never had homes before.
Briana Eickoff, the humane society’s Director of Operations, hopes to get as many of these animals homes as possible.
“They are absolutely looking for home,” she said. “The more we can place into new homes now just means we can help that many more dogs and cats that are coming up in the future find new homes as well.”
Twelve dogs and seventeen cats have already been adopted. There are still about a hundred more animals left. Along with tens of cats and dogs the also has rabbits, rats, guinea pigs, and a turtle up for adoption.
They plan to continue the promotion into the weekend. Anyone who plans to visit should enter from NW Arterial because there is major roadwork blocking the Chavenelle Road’s northern lane.
