Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter has announced a “Summer Love” pet adoption special to make it easier to bring a new furry family member home. With shelters teeming with adoptable animals, the “Summer Love” special is designed to help as many pets as possible find caring homes.

Through Sunday, June 30, all pets can be adopted for half the usual adoption fee. Reduced adoption fees include the comprehensive preparation care package, including spay or neuter surgery, up-to-date vaccinations, flea and tick preventative services, a microchip for permanent identification and a license for dogs that will be living in Santa Cruz County.

“Our shelter remains very full. We have an incredible selection of pets of all ages and personalities, including dozens who, remarkably, have been waiting a month or longer to find a new home,” said Animal Shelter General Manager Amber Rowland. “We hope this promotion will encourage families to open their hearts and homes and give these pets a chance at love in a new home.”

Studies show that pets help us exercise more, feel needed and valued, and improve our overall health. Interested adopters can visit the shelter at 1001 Rodriguez St. in Santa Cruz from 11am-6pm daily or browse adoptable pets online at
