Beginning Wednesday, June 7, and continuing each Wednesday through September 6, the Atlantic County Animal Shelter is waiving all fees for dogs adopted from its shelter.

“The goal of our ‘Waive-Fee Wednesdays’ is to promote dog adoptions,” County Executive Dennis Levinson said. “We had great success with our Memorial Day weekend promotion finding homes for eight dogs and nine cats. We hope to build upon that success with these weekly canine promotions.”

All adopted dogs receive mandatory sterilization, age-appropriate vaccinations, diagnostic testing, a microchip and a free veterinary consultation as well as two free obedience classes. The normal adoption fee for a dog is $110.

Those interested in taking advantage of this opportunity should call the shelter to make an appointment at (609) 485-2345.

The shelter is located at 240 Old Turnpike Road in Pleasantville and is open to the public by appointment seven days a week, 1-4 PM.
