The Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County is offering lowered adoption fees as a part of a nationwide campaign to "Clear The Shelters." 

The shelter said it is currently caring for over 700 animals, and they need to boost adoptions and clear space. 

From August 16-31, the shelter’s adoption fees will be $5 for critters, $25 for adult cats, and $50 for adult dogs.

Typically, adoption fees range from $80 to $500 for dogs and $30 to $135 for cats. 

There are currently over 90 animals available for adoption with many more being made available over the next few weeks.

"We have a lot of animals available for adoption and several hundred more currently receiving care at our facility and in foster," says Lindsey Heaney, communications manager at the Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County. "If you’ve been thinking about adopting, now is a great time!"
