Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation in Waynesville is sponsoring "Home for the Holidays" to enable people to adopt dogs and cats from the Haywood County Animal Shelter at a reduced rate from November 21 through December 31.
Sarge’s and Aidan’s Fund will pay a portion of the adoption fee. All dogs adopted during this time will be available for $60.00. Male cats can be adopted for $27.50 and females $37.50. The fee covers the cost of spay/neuter and a rabies vaccination.
The Haywood County Animal Shelter is located at 245 Hemlock Street in Waynesville. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 9 AM to 5 PM, Saturday 9 AM to 4 PM, and Sunday 12 PM to 4 PM. The shelter will be closed Monday through Wednesday December 24-26.
For 2012, the group "Youth for Sarge's" is assisting in the event, hanging a wreath at the animal shelter and making stockings that will be displayed each time a dog or cat is adopted. Youth for Sarge's has raised $3,000 for the organization this year through a variety of fundraising activities.
