Promotion offered as part of Bissell Pet Foundation’s Empty the Shelter campaign
Martinez, CA – Contra Costa Animal Services (CCAS) will be offering $25 adoptions of all animals through May 14th as part of the Bissell Pet Foundation’s “Empty the Shelter” adoption campaign. The goal of this promotion is to find loving homes for homeless pets in Contra Costa County.
Through this partnership with the Bissell Pet Foundation, CCAS will join 110 shelters in 22 different states offering reduced fee adoptions to adopt as many pets as possible this weekend.
“To permanently end the homeless pet problem, everyone across the country needs to understand that there are beautiful, worthy animals in shelters who should be the first choice when bringing a pet into your home,” said Cathy Bissell, Founder of the Bissell Pet Foundation. “You will get the most loving pet who will literally change your life because it’s so grateful to be loved. I want every person to know they can be part of the solution if they adopt a shelter pet.”
The $25 adoption special includes most fees associated with adopting an animal, including: adoption fees, spay/neuter, micro-chipping and vaccination (avg. cost of adoption is between $104-$284).
Interested adopters can take advantage of this free adoption promotion by visiting CCAS’ Martinez adoption center to meet our animals and adopt their new family member. To view available pets online, please visit www.ccasd.org
