The Humane Society for Tacoma & Pierce County is waiving adoption fees for all adult dogs for the month of November.

Over the summer, the shelter was operating at full or mostly full capacity after taking on hundreds of animals from a neglect situation. 

Currently, the shelter is working to contain a canine respiratory disease and is in urgent need of support from the community to adopt or foster the many adoptable dogs waiting for a loving home.

Dogs that qualify for the waived adoption fee are 2-years old and older. 

The adoption fee for adult dogs is typically $175 to $250.

Dog adopters will only be responsible for paying a city license depending on their place of residence.

"Every adoptable pet has had a wellness exam from shelter veterinary staff, been spayed or neutered, received their initial vaccines, and is microchipped with national registration," the shelter said.

You can also donate to the shelter. All donations made by Nov. 29 will be doubled.
